Soldiers of the Azov Regiment, despite the significant predominance of enemy forces and a lack of ammunition, continue to knock out the invaders from their captured positions at the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol.
Quote: “On the 78th day of the full-scale war, totally surrounded, despite an extremely difficult situation, lack of ammunition, and a large number of wounded, the soldiers of the Azov Regiment continue to knock out the enemy from their previously captured positions on the territory of the Azovstal plant.
The Defenders of Mariupol are storming enemy positions, doing the impossible, despite the enemy’s constant use of aircraft, naval and tubed artillery, tanks and other weapons.”
Details: Azov posted a video of Ukrainian soldiers attacking the invaders.
The Russian occupiers refused to allow the extraction of defenders of Mariupol by sea to a neutral country. They also said that after all the civilians had been removed from the bunkers, “the gloves would be off”.
Russian troops storm Azovstal with the use of aircraft, ships, and ground forces.
The Russians block exits from underground bunkers where Ukrainian defenders are hiding, but even so, the Ukrainian military launches successful counter-attacks against them.
Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk declared that Ukraine is ready to exchange captured Russians for seriously wounded soldiers in the dungeons of Azovstal.
