“Fierce and brutal battles” in Azovstal – Traitor helped the Russians

Russian forces launched another offensive against the Ukrainians in steelworks plant Azovstal in Mariupol on Thursday.

A path to the plant’s tunnels was allegedly shown to the Russians by a factory electrician who was described as a “traitor” by Ukrainian Interior Ministry adviser Anton Herashchenko.

According to The New York Times, a Ukrainian commander claimed that “fierce and brutal battles” were taking place in the underground tunnels and shelters of the factory.

“For a second day, the enemy invaded the plant. There are difficult and bloody battles. I’m proud of my soldiers who make superhuman efforts to limit the enemy’s attack. Thank you all for the tremendous support of the Mariupol guard. Our soldiers deserve it! ” said the Ukrainian commander about the fighting in Azovstal.

The battles have not yet been officially confirmed by Moscow and a “ceasefire” is typically in force until Saturday, which, if Ukrainian allegations apply, is violated.
