Ukraine: Russia continues its attacks on the Azovstal industrial complex

AA / Kyiv

The Ukrainian General Staff announced on Thursday that the Russian army was still continuing its attacks against resistance soldiers barricaded in the Azovstal industrial complex in Mariupol.

Local authorities in several regions, meanwhile, said the Russian military continued to shell many Ukrainian towns, according to separate statements.

Chernihiv Governor Viacheslav Chaus said in a statement that Russian forces carried out airstrikes against vital infrastructure in the city, damaging schools, administrative buildings and residences.

On the other hand, the administration of the city of Novhorod-Siverskyi indicated that 3 people had been killed and 12 others injured, during an attack by Russian forces against a school boarding school in the city.

According to Dnipropetrovsk Governor Borys Filatov, Russian forces had targeted two villages in the area with missiles, killing one person and injuring another.

The city of Sumy also reported that Russian forces continued to target separate areas of the city, noting that one person had been killed and many buildings had been damaged.

The Ukrainian General Staff announced in a statement that the Russian army was continuing its attacks against Ukrainian soldiers who were defending the Azovstal industrial complex in the city of Mariupol.

Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said that about a thousand Ukrainian soldiers are barricaded in the Azovstal compound, and about half of them need urgent medical treatment.

On February 24, Russia started a war in Ukraine, which sparked strong international reactions and the imposition of “severe” economic and financial sanctions against Moscow. To end the war, Russia demands that Ukraine renounce all hints of joining military entities and maintain total neutrality, which kyiv considers an “interference in its sovereignty”.
