Ukrainian commander calls for help in Mariupol: Russian troops ten times better than local defense – Ukrainian war

In a message sent to this Wednesday Washington PostSerhi Volyna warns that Russian forces “control the air and the country has artillery and superiority over vehicles” and claims that Russian forces are ten times better than Ukraine’s defense.

The commander of the 36th Marine Brigade speaks of resistance, which may be “just a few days or a few more hours” in Mariupol.

Ukraine’s defense is once again asking for international help to get civilians out of Mariupol so that they can be saved from successive Russian attacks.

Last week, Russia announced that more than 1,000 soldiers from the 36th Marines Brigade, including 162 officers, had surrendered in Mariupol. The British Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner, who defended Mariupol and were captured by Russian troops last week, were part of this brigade.

Azov said in a Telegram application on Tuesday: “We are going to fight, we are going to use all the remaining cartridges, but we are calling on the homeland to save the civilians, the wounded and take the bodies.”
