Ukraine-Russia War: 1,700 Ukrainians surrender from Mariupol's Azovstal - UK intel



At least 1,700 Ukrainian soldiers have likely surrendered to Russian forces after holding out in the Azovstal steel plant in the key Sea of Azov port city of Mariupol, a UK intelligence update stated Friday morning as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues.

The report alleges that while an unknown amount of Ukrainian troops are still holding out in the steel plant, Russia will continue to work to secure Mariupol, after which they will shift their forces to reinforce their various operations in eastern Ukraine's Donbas region.

However, this will not be easy and will take time.

The battle for Mariupol has been incredibly fierce and costly for Russian troops, so their soldiers will need to be reequipped and resupplied before redeployment - something that will take a considerable amount of time.

However, according to the UK intelligence update, Russia will likely work to redeploy their troops fast without properly equipping or supplying them. This is because of the considerable pressure Russian commanders are under to achieve results as the invasion continues to drag on. This, in turn, is likely to risk further attrition.

Shelling in Luhansk

Russian shelling in the Luhansk Oblast in eastern Ukraine has killed 13 civilians over the past 24 hours, the regional governor, Serhiy Gaidai, said on Friday.

Twelve were killed in the town of Sievierodonesk, where a Russian assault has been unsuccessful, he said. The town and the city of Lysychansk are in an area where Russian troops have launched an offensive
