Russian troops managed to enter the complex of the Azovstal steel plant in the besieged city of Mariupol , according to David Arahamiya, a parliamentarian from Ukraine who participates in negotiations with Russia to end the conflict between the two countries.

“The troops are already on the company’s ground”, said the head of the Ukrainian negotiating delegation.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, however, said that Russian troops had started a new offensive, with air support, this Wednesday (4), to try to take control of the steel mill.

“The blockades and attempts to defeat our units in the Azovstal complex continue naked. In some areas, attacks receive air support with the aim of taking control of the plant. Unsuccessful”, said the military leadership in a statement.

Mariupol City Hall also warned of these new attacks, noting that hundreds of civilians, including 30 minors, are still sheltered at the steel mill and are waiting to be redeemed.

According to the government of Ukraine, there are more than a thousand people without water, electricity and basic necessities among the ruins of the port city besieged by the Russian troops.
