Russia’s president has announced the complete capture of the city of Mariupol, almost two months after Russia’s war on Ukraine.
Russia has previously warned Ukrainian troops to surrender and surrender, following Ukraine’s offer of talks to evacuate civilians as Russian troops besiege the city of Mariupol.
It is noteworthy that a top official in the administration of President Vladimir Putin had earlier said that Russian forces would capture the main opposition stronghold of Mariupol today.
It has been reported that since the start of the war on Ukraine eight weeks ago, the city of Mariupol has been completely captured, with Russia largely unable to capture anything on a large scale.
The key announcement comes almost two months after some military experts predicted that Russia would capture Ukraine within days of the start of the war with its military might. As a result of this war, more than five million people fled abroad. Cities turned into ruins.
Putin has already ordered troops to seize the Azovstal, the largest steel plant in the Ukrainian capital, Mariupol, completely without destroying it, as it has fallen under Russian control.
Fierce fighting broke out in the southeastern port city of Mariupol as besieged Russian forces tried to take full control. Earlier, Kiv had proposed the safe evacuation of civilians and soldiers trapped in the steel plant.
