Russian forces as we informed launched a new fierce military offensive against Eastern Ukraine and focus on eliminating the remaining Ukrainian enclaves like Azovstal in the city of Mariupol.

According to Russian state television, about 120 people living near the steel plant in the besieged Ukrainian port of Mariupol have fled the area through humanitarian corridors, according to the Russian news agency Interfax.

Russia gave an ultimatum to the fighters of Azov and the Ukrainian army to surrender, but from what we learn so far has not been accepted and the fighting remains fierce.
