The rocket attack on Mariupol on Saturday, as well as taking the lives of 30 people and injuring over 100, caused around UAH 100 million in damage to the city, City Administration Chairman Oleksandr Kikhtenko has said, Ukrainian news broadcaster Channel 5 reported.


Repair work is being carried out in the city to tackle damage from fires caused by the attack, and assistance is being provided to victims, Kikhtenko said.

"Commissions have been set up, acts are being drawn up. About a hundred cars were damaged, including private ones,” he said.
