(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last Sunday night, Ukrainian resistance fighters in Mariupol used a Russian mine to blow up a Russian patrol unit.
In a Telegram post on Monday, Petro Andriushchenko, an advisor to the Mariupol mayor’s office said the Ukrainian resistance fighters lured Russian soldiers patrolling Mariupol into a trap by claiming that Azov fighters were holed up in a home on the outskirts of the city.
The Azov Regiment is a group of Ukrainian paramilitary fighters who fought to keep the city of Mariupol in Ukrainian hands. The Kremlin designated Azov as a terrorist organization.
The Russian patrol made their way to the house to confront the paramilitary fighters, but when they arrived, no Azov fighters were there.
What was there, however, were Russian mines planted during the siege of Mariupol.
The Russian patrol was blown up by a Russian mine.
According to Andriushchenko, one of the Russians was killed instantly while the second had his leg blown off. The second was later taken to a hospital in Donetsk.
Andriushchenko also claimed that Ukrainian flags are beginning to appear in the Russian-occupied Mariupol and occupying soldiers have been tearing them down.
Mariupol was subjected to heavy bombardment throughout the war as its citizens hid underground without food, water, or electricity for months
