Mikhail Krutko the leader of the local self-defense force said there was no accurate information about casualties due to the faltering communication network in the city.
The Ukrainian army encircled Mariupol on May 3. During the cover of the night troops entered the city center and attacked several government buildings occupied by federalist forces. But, an extensive offensive has been delayed up until today.
Kiev's possibilities are limited. It seems that NATO still hasn't deployed enough American troops in Ukraine (with the exception of mercenaries), that's why Kiev can't launch several offensives simultaneously.
The other problem is that Ukrainian army units regularly switch sides therefore, Americans do most of the fighting; which also explains the brutality of the punitive actions against the civilian population.
The illegitimate Kiev regime sends foreign mercenaries -- dressed in Ukrainian army uniform -- to the front line and keeps its own troops behind the lines as they are unreliable.
