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.”
