After some weeks of defending the troubled Azovstal Steel plant, reports coming in from Mariupol is that the Ukrainian fighters holed up underground have now surrendered to Russian troops.
Recall that the Ukrainian battalion holed up in the steel plant had earlier sworn to fight to the last man in a symbol most media outlets are referring to as the “Last Stand”.
However, after weeks of heavy bombardment and several serious injuries inflicted by Russian and Allied Forces, Ukrainian government finally accepted defeat, giving way for the evacuation of the surrendered Ukrainian fighters to be evacuated.
The evacuation will see hundreds of wounded soldiers receive proper medical treatment while the Azov battalion will be dealt accordingly.
