However, the fighting continued for more than ten days. In order to save the big fish in the encirclement, the Ukrainian army also fought hard and sent 6 helicopters and a boat to rescue them. But all were destroyed by Russians.
The Azov battalion was driven into the steel mill, and the 36th marine Brigade was driven to the port and metallurgical plant. The 36th Brigade in the port surrendered in one day. Within a few days, more than 1,500 people from the 36th Brigade, which held the steel plant and metallurgical plant, surrendered, and 3,000 Ukrainian troops surrendered one after another.
The Russian army still did not use heavy weapons in attacking the steel plant. The heaviest weapon was the tank. It destroyed some less important buildings and wanted to protect important facilities such as blast furnaces. Because this steel mill market accounts for 1/3 of the European market.
The strategic bomber Tu 22 flew over the steel plant and dropped eight FAB-500s and FAB-3000s bombs to destroy underground bunkers.
Some people have seen that the crater created by the bomb is more than 100 meters in diameter and more than 10 meters deep. Buildings within 1 square kilometer collapsed, and the internal organs of personnel blasted. The underground tunnel in the steel plant collapsed, which was said to be able to resist atomic bombs.
