Local residents from Mariupol have specifically stated independently from each other from different impact sites that the flight path came from the north toward Sartana and from the west-north-west toward Starri Crim.

Residents are stating that utilities including gas, electric, and water were cut off 1/2 hour before the attack occurred.

Unguided rockets follow a straight trajectory. By taking two of the northern route impacts and establishing their location and direction on a map trajectory again takes us back toward Sartana.

Even though the video is Russian language it details both location of and direction very well. Put on a map the direction of impact and trajectory show the origin once again is north of Sartana.

Kiev's New Evidence Debunked

The government in Ukraine announced yesterday that it caught DNR spotters that picked the targets. The first one they showed is code named "Terrorist" and the second one nicknamed just as colorfully is "Ash." The evidence they have presented shows the origin of the attacks as south-east from the town of Vineygrad (Grape). No launches originated from that direction.

Mariupol City Government sent out an official statement about the attack that specifically DOES NOT name the DNR or Russia as the aggressors. The wording of the document was voted on by 52 city councilmen and passed unanimously.

Azov Battalion Weighs In

In the following video made right after the Mariupol rocket attack Azov commander Sergei Korotky gloats that the rockets struck only areas where the Ukrainian military including Azov Battalion never had a presence. The impact locations are squarely in ethnic Russian areas that support the local militia and where their families are located.

The Ukrainian Nationalist Motive for the Attacks

In an interview that was never aired on Ukraine's Channel 5 (Poroshenko's TV station) Nazar Mosiychuk, a long time Patriot Ukraine member (since 2007[ possible relative Igor Mosiychuk- Azov 2nd in command, head of Ukrainian police]) states what newly appointed Rada MP Andrei Biletsky's (lobbied US Congress for funding) real opinion about people in Mariupol is. Azov is based in Mariupol.
