According to a media report, the mayor of Mariupol, Vadim Boychenko, said that Russian forces had laid siege to the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol. The Russian military launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24, three days after Moscow recognized the separate territories of Ukraine (Donetsk and Luhansk) as independent entities.
