The Russian Defense Ministry has claimed that the city of Mariupol was unblocked.
Forces of the DPR, with the support of the Russian military, destroyed almost all firing points of Ukrainian nationalists in the suburbs of Mariupol. Special forces eliminated the main nationalist forces in residential areas in villages around the city, the Russian Defense Ministry said in an emergency statement.
The successful operations made it possible to secure humanitarian corridors for civilians from 3 p.m. Moscow time on March 14. Mass evacuation of civilians who had been held hostage by Ukrainian nationalists began.
