POKROVSK, Ukraine (AP) — In what would be its biggest victory yet in the war with Ukraine, Russia claimed to have captured Mariupol after a nearly three-month siege that reduced much of the strategic port city to a smoking ruin, with over 20,000 civilians feared dead.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to President Vladimir Putin the “complete liberation” of the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol — the last stronghold of Ukrainian resistance — and the city as a whole, spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Russia’s state news agency RIA Novosti quoted the ministry as saying a total of 2,439 Ukrainian fighters who had been holed up at the steelworks had surrendered since Monday, including over 500 on Friday.
The surrendering troops were taken prisoner by the Russians, the report says.
There was no immediate confirmation from Ukraine, AP reports.

“Why couldn’t they just surrender to Russia right from the start? Mariupol is so ruined because of them now.”
Sometimes I just lose my faith in humankind as I stuck upon such comments on the internet.
