Azovstal” by Dmytro Kozatsky, an Azov Regiment fighter, the regiment’s
press secretary who spent 84 days at the steelworks next to his
comrades, has been released.
The film, which Orest (Dmytro Kozatsky) made the day before his
captivity, shows the steelworks from the inside. The Russians destroyed
the Azovstal, dropping bombs from the sky, constantly firing artillery
from the ground, and launching missiles from the sea. Twisted metal
rods, rails, various broken production structures, and the open sky
visible in the holes of the bombed industrial building.
“The last day at Azovstal. The video was edited by BABYLON’13 based
on materials provided by the Mariupol Garrison. We are all indebted to
our Defenders of Mariupol. There are no words to describe their feat and
heroism,” reads the caption below.
As reported, Ukrainian service members defended Mariupol for more
than 80 days. On May 16, the evacuation of Ukrainian defenders from the
Azovstal steelworks, blocked by Russian invaders, began. More than 50
seriously wounded soldiers were evacuated to a facility in Novoazovsk
for medical treatment. More than 200 people were taken to Olenivka
through the humanitarian corridor. An exchange procedure will be carried
out to return them home.
