MARIUPOL – Brightly lit white ammunition was seen raining down on the Azovstal steel mill in the Mariupol port, Ukraine . The factory where the Kiev team was hiding has been cordoned off Russia for weeks.

British military experts called the gruesome sight at the steel mill akin to a phosphorus attack or incendiary weapons.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said “subtle” negotiations were underway to rescue the Ukrainian soldiers hiding under the sprawling steel mill complex.

A Ukrainian officer among the remaining defenders said 600 fighters were still present, 40 of whom were seriously injured. Meanwhile the civilians have been evacuated from the bunker labyrinth.

The type of white ammunition that lit up could not be identified. Video of the attack was posted on Sunday on the Telegram messaging app by Alexander Khodakovsky, a commander of the pro-Russian republic of Donetsk.

“If you don’t know what it is and for what purpose—you can say it’s even beautiful,” Khodakovsky said in a message alongside the video.

Khodakovsky could not immediately be reached for comment.

It was not immediately clear which troops fired the ammunition, or from where.
