 2,439 Ukrainian Militants of radical groups at Azovstal surrender: Russia claims full control of Mariupol - Russian Defense Ministry

MOSCOW: The Russian Defense Ministry has said it fully controls the territory of the Azovstal steel plant in the southern Ukrainian city of Mariupol. According to the ministry, the last group of 531 Ukrainian fighters have now surrendered. Since May 16, a total of 2,439 Ukrainian soldiers have laid down their arms, Russia says. 

He noted that “more than a half of the Ukrainian servicemen has already left. They have already laid down their weapons, and came out with white flags». Kiev gave no comments on the Russian statements. Ukraine prefers to call the surrender of the Ukrainian radicals to be an «evacuation». The Ukrainian mass media and the politicians prefer to never mention the events at the ’Azovstal’ factory. The Deputy Head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, Anna Malyar, called the statements of Moscow and the numbers of the Ukrainian servicemen who have surrendered to be a ’’propaganda’’. The PoWs were sent to hospitals and some pre-trial detention centers — they are awaiting for their trials.

A ministry spokesman said that Russia's Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu had informed President Vladimir Putin of "the end of the operation and the complete liberation of the (Azovstal) industrial complex and the city of Mariupol." The Azovstal plant was the last pocket of Ukrainian resistance in Mariupol, the port city besieged by Russian troops since the early days of the invasion of Ukraine.
