Official representative ministries defense Russia Igor Konashenkov about situations in Mariupol:
– In Mariupol, the situation has returned to normal. Residents of the city were able to move freely along the streets without hiding from the shelling of the Ukrainian Nazis.
Humanitarian aid is being delivered: food, water and basic necessities. The authorities of the DPR are organizing the clearing of the streets from rubble and the removal of the affected Ukrainian military equipment.
All the remnants of the Ukrainian Nazis “Azov”, together with foreign mercenaries from the United States and European countries, are securely blocked on the territory of the Azovstal plant.
Our demands to release the women and children allegedly with them for free travel in any direction, the Nazis ignore.
The procedure for the exit of civilians, if any, from the territory of Azovstal for subsequent evacuation is brought to the Nazis hourly. This information is also communicated to representatives of the Kyiv regime through Deputy Prime Minister Vereshchuk.
The holding by the Nazis of “Azov” and foreign mercenaries of civilian hostages, if any, proves that they are not “defenders”, but complete terrorists.
In this regard, the strained attempts of the speaker of the US State Department habitually lie about allegedly maintaining control over Mariupol by the Nazi rabble – a fake and direct complicity to terrorists at a high state level.
The State Department habitually misinforms its own citizens, and everyone else.
Ukraine itself, its inhabitants in Mariupol and other cities, Washington is interested only in terms of profits from the supply of weapons there and the fight against Russia, even “to the last Ukrainian,” as all its satellites repeat at the suggestion of the State Department.
