The invaders launched a ground operation to seize the Azovstal plant
Russian invaders have not abandoned their attempts to seize the Azovstal plant in occupied Mariupol.
Petro Andriushchenko, Adviser to the Mayor of Mariupol reports about it.
Ukrainian soldiers defending the city are keeping the defense in complete encirclement and are constantly enforcing counterattacks, which lead to significant losses of the enemy manpower and equipment.
Today, May 13, the Russians launched a ground operation against the Ukrainian defenders.
“Under the cover of shelling, the invaders are trying to break through into the plant by the ground. Basically live on air. The situation is getting more complicated each day,” wrote the Adviser to the Mayor of Mariupol on Telegram.
The invaders are trying to break the resistance of Ukrainian soldiers, and continue to launch artillery and airstrikes.
Previously, the General Staff claimed that it would be difficult to unblock Mariupol through military means, whereas it could lead to significant losses.
According to servicemen, unblocking Mariupol requires the efforts of a significant number of troops. Units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are now stationed 150 to 200 km away from the occupied city.
The representative of the General Staff stressed that the planning process of any operation is not a topic for public discussion.
He added that ammunition, communications, and medicine were delivered to Mariupol, but this possibility went away after the information became public.
Soldiers of the Azov Regiment who remain in Mariupol together with other Ukrainian units continue to repel the enemy’s attempts to storm Azovstal.
The servicemen emphasize that they are not going to surrender to the invaders and are following the order of the General Staff to keep the defense.
