Ukraine Krieg - Situationsbericht Tag 83

By Jordi Bou

May 17, 2022 - Mehr als 260 ukrainische Soldaten, viele verwundet, sind aus dem belagerterten Azov Stahlwerk in Mariupol evakuiert worden. Es scheint, die Ukrainer haben die Stadt den Russen nach 82 Tagen Bombardement überlassen.

Ukraine’s deputy defence minister, Hanna Maliar, said that 53 heavily wounded soldiers were evacuated to a hospital in the Russian-controlled town of Novoazovsk and that more than 200 others were transported through a corridor to Olenivka.

All of the evacuees will be subject to a potential prisoner exchange with Russia, she added.

It was unclear how many soldiers remained in the steel plant, but Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said: “We hope to save the lives of our boys”.
