Ukraine Krieg - Situationsbericht Tag 84

By Jordi Bou

May 18, 2022 - Die Sorge wächst wie es den über 260 ulrainischen Kämpfern geht, die sich russischen Truppen im Azov Stahlwerk in Mariupol ergeben haben, nachdem sie monatelang erbitterten Widerstand geleistet haben.

Ukraine says all those being evacuated from the Mariupol steelworks will be swapped for Russian prisoners of war, but the parliament in Moscow is sending out a different signal, with the speaker saying “Nazi criminals” should not be exchanged.

The battle for the city appears to be over after a devastating siege that lasted nearly three months.

The fall of Mariupol would give Russia a land bridge to Crimea and control of the Sea of Azov, cutting off Ukraine's maritime trade.
