Detonations at Russian ammo depot near Mariupol

An ammunition depot blew up in the village of Novotroitske just outside Mariupol, the industrial city on the Sea of Azov captured by Russian invaders last year.

That’s according to Petro Andriushchenko, the advisor to the city mayor in exile, who posted on Telegram a video of black smoke rising from the site.

"Meanwhile, in the occupied Novotroitske of Donetsk region, an ammo depot is nicely detonating... This day is a blast. Mariupol. Melitopol. Tokmak Donetsk. Novotroitske – and this day’s not over yet. Nice," Andriushchenko wrote in a caption.

As reported, the invaders are turning Mariupol and the surrounding villages into a military logistics hub for the Russian army.

One of the latest explosions was reported at a Russian ammunition depot in the occupied village of Maloyanisol near Mariupol on March 16.
