According to the latest update, the terrorists tried to blow up two more railway bridges near Mariupol, the Donetsk region.

Censor.NET reports citing the official Facebook page of the Azov special purpose regiment.

"The militants blew up the railway bridge over the Kalchyk river near Sartana railway station today at 1:40 a.m. The latest information reports that the terrorists tried to blow up two more railway bridges. Two Azovstal plant guards prevented the attempt. The militants opened fire at them. One guard was killed and the other was wounded as a result of the clash. More than 80 kilograms of TNT were found during examination of the site of the planned terrorist attack. The militants' attack was obviously aimed at cutting off the procurement of the city and the plants to destabilize the situation and demoralize civil population," the statement reads.
