“All the civilians who were at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol have already been evacuated,” Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk said.
“Today we managed to take 50 women, children and the elderly out of Azovstal. Tomorrow morning we will continue the evacuation operation,” Vereshchuk added on Telegram.
According to the Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister, the evacuation was difficult and there were “constant violations” of the ceasefire by Russian forces, who continue to fight in the steel plant against Ukrainian troops.
A refugee evacuation caravan at a steel plant “was forced to stay near Azovstal all day” due to “fights and other provocations,” Ukrainian authorities said, before announcing that the evacuation would continue tomorrow.
The destination of the evacuees will be Zaporozhye, where the Ukrainian authorities have concentrated most of the civilians evacuated from the smelter.
