On February 13, explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Mariupol. There were strikes at the Russian occupiers' location, and the detonation was still heard in Manhush, 20 km from the city, according to the advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, Petro Andriushchenko.

"There is a strike. The Manhush part of Mariupol district is where the Russian occupiers are located," he says.

According to the mayor's advisor, ambulances are already rushing down Kuprin Street in Mariupol.

"Manhush still hears the sounds of detonation. The process of demining the ammunition warehouse continues," he states almost an hour after the explosion.

Situation in Mariupol

In early February, the Russian military became more active in the occupied Mariupol and its area. The enemy is transporting food and warm clothes from Volnovakha to the Azov Sea coast via a rather unusual route.

At the same time, in December 2023, Atesh guerrillas admitted that they were conducting reconnaissance in Mariupol, "trying to increase the number of sabotage attacks." The city has already recorded several massive cases of liquidation of the Russian invaders.

The temporarily occupied Mariupol was captured by Russian troops in February 2022 during the Russian invasion. Since the first days of the invasion, Russian troops have been doing everything possible to turn Mariupol into a military base, including the seaport. In addition, it was previously reported that Russian military bases were being set up in Mariupol, which was located outside the city's industrial zone. Here, the Russian occupiers accumulate ammunition and keep about 100-150 personnel.
