Defiant Ukrainian soldier says, 'The fight for Mariupol is NOT over' By The Sun April 22, 2022
THE fight for Mariupol is 'far from over' according to defiant soldiers of Ukraine's Azov regiment.
This English language video statement from Azov Regiment Officer Ilya Samoilenko was issued from inside the besieged city of Mariupol on Thursday (21April2022).
Samoilenko and other fighters are holding out in the city’s Azovstal steelworks having resisted for a month in the city where some of the most brutal attacks have occurred.
In his passionate statement, given while explosions could be heard in the background, Samoilenko, a soldier from the Azov Battalion, says the port city is "not yet dominated", denying Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claims that his troops control all of the city except for the steelworks, which they are blockading.
