President: Leaders of free world know what Russia has done to Mariupol

All the leaders of the free world know what the Russian Federation has done to Mariupol.

“All the leaders of the free world know what Russia has done to Mariupol. And Russia will not go unpunished for this. Many of the leaders are trying to help save our heroic defenders of the city,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said in his latest address.

As noted, the issue of Mariupol was discussed in great detail with the UN Secretary-General during his visit to Kyiv.

“We are doing everything possible to ensure that the evacuation mission from Mariupol is carried out,” Zelensky added.

As Sviatoslav Palamar a.k.a. Kalyna, deputy commander of the Azov Regiment, informed on the evening of April 30, twenty civilians – women and children – had been evacuated from the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, destroyed by Russian shelling.

About 1,000 civilians and Ukrainian servicemen still stay in plant’s territory, including about 600 wounded.

Mariupol experiences one of the biggest humanitarian catastrophes caused by Russian aggression. The invaders bomb unarmed residents, block the delivery of humanitarian aid, and deport Ukrainian citizens to depressed regions of Russia.

Soldiers of the Azov Regiment, marines, and motorized riflemen continue to defend Mariupol.
