The attack took place on Saturday against the G12 Art School located in the city’s Left Bank district, according to authorities.

“It is known that the building has been destroyed and civilians are still under the rubble. Information on the number of victims is being specified,” says the message, published this Sunday on the City Council’s Telegram account.

Mariupol authorities on Friday accused Russia of another bombing of a shelter at the local Drama Theater, which would have buried more than 1,300 civilians inside. Some 130 people have been rescued so far from there, although operations on Saturday were particularly slow due to the intensity of the fighting.

However, the Russian Defense Ministry denied any involvement in what happened and directly accused the Azov Battalion, a neo-Nazi paramilitary group, of being responsible for this “new bloody provocation”.
