Pools of blood on the sidewalk. Broken windows of the post office. Traces of fragmentation bullets in the asphalt. Shoes whose owners are now lying in the morgue. It's a perfectly normal Friday morning in Korobelnyj, a district of Mykolaiv on Ukraine's Black Sea coast.
It was 9:45 a.m. when the Russian fragmentation shells hit. A few people were waiting at the bus stop to go to work. Pensioners sat on park benches next to a World War II armored car. They wanted to withdraw their money from the post office.
