Watch: Dashboard cam captures moment of deadly rocket attack in Ukraine

The attack is blamed on pro-Russian rebels and killed 30 people.

A UKRAINIAN DASHBOARD camera has caught the moment a shell landed in Mariupol yesterday in an attack that killed 30 people.

Pro-Russian rebels have not claimed responsibility for the Grad and Uragan rockets but the attacks came at the end of a week-long rebel advance. The upsurge has seen the separatists take the long-disputed Donetsk airport and pledge to conquer more territory.

Mariupol is the last major city in the country’s two separatist provinces that is still controlled by Kiev, and rebel leader Alexander Zakharchenko announced shortly after the rocket strikes that the insurgents were launching an offensive aimed at taking it.
