That is Russian style, not Ukrainian style. Brave Ukrainian army liberated Mariupol from Russian thugs this morning.
In Mariupol a group of masked men with baseball bats stormed the town hall during the night. The protestors, who were unarmed, called the police. Who are currently trying to negotiate a peaceful solution. So not quite as you reported it. This from the BBC
According to the local news website 0629, a group of about 30 unidentified men in their twenties armed with baseball bats stormed the mayor's office between 03:00 (01:00 GMT) and 04:00 on Thursday.
The protesters called the police who reportedly came out and calmed down the opposing sides.
Negotiations are under way at the scene between the separatists, the local pro-Ukrainian authorities and the police, the site says.
While the interior minister said nobody had been hurt in the operation, 0629 reported that five men were injured, though not seriously"
