Mariupol is now completely blocked and surrounded by Russian troops and the forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic, a mass surrender of the Ukrainian military began. As it became known, more than 1,000 marines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine declared their surrender within a few hours.
After a large detachment of the Ukrainian Marines around 300 soldiers surrendered En-Masse in Mariupol a few days ago, it became known that this gave rise to a wave of large-scale surrender among the Ukrainian military, still in the besieged Mariupol. According to Russian military correspondent Oleksandr Sladkov, over a thousand Ukrainian marines have surrendered in the last 24 hours.
“Three hundred wounded, ninety unable to move independently, and more than 800 healthy soldiers were surrendered. If everything ends according to plan, the defense arranged by the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the Metallurgical Plant will fall, – said a Russian war correspondent.
The information on this subject was partially confirmed by a Russian war correspondent with the corresponding photographs with capitulating Ukrainian marines. However, it is impossible to confirm the data that more than 1,000 people surrendered from the photographs presented.
It is reported that the 36th Ukrainian Marine Corps Brigade in Mariupol released his last words through social media. The 36th Ukrainian Marine Corps Brigade said: “Dear Ukrainian people, we do not know what will happen next. But we implore you, remember the Marine Corps.
At the same time, the 36th Brigade of the Ukrainian Marine Corps said: Now the entire brigade has run out of ammunition and food has been cut off. After 45 days of fighting, all infantrymen were killed and now rely on artillerymen, drivers, guards, military bands, and anti-aircraft gunners to pick up their rifles and fight. The 36th Brigade will launch hand-to-hand combat at the last moment. Finally expressed the hope that Ukrainians will remember the battle of the 36th Marine Corps Brigade in Mariupol.
However, the battle in Mariupol will continue to be fierce. More than 3,000 remaining Ukrainian troops and Azov battalion are hidden in the three major factory areas with the steel factory as the core. Ukraine’s core positions in Mariupol are the three major factory areas, which are very difficult to crack. The Russian army has so far been outside the three major factories, and has never entered the core positions of the Ukrainian army.
