At least 100 civilians are still at the Azovstal steel plant
Mariupol is surviving the most devastating battles in the Russian invasion and the war in Ukraine. Azovstal Ironworks is the last part of the city still in the hands of Ukrainian fighters.
Ukraine has previously said that all civilians have left Azovstal, and Russia has announced that the evacuation of civilians from the plant has been completed.
“Apart from the army, there are at least 100 civilians in the Azovstal shelters. However, this does not reduce the intensity of the occupation attacks.”, Andriushchenko wrote on the Telegram.
Russia has not commented on his allegations, and Western media outlets have failed to obtain independent confirmation of the allegations.
