Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said it had “temporarily” lost access to the Sea of Azov.
This Ukrainian statement comes at a time when Russian forces are increasingly approaching the complete occupation of Mariupol, having achieved the complete siege of this city.
“The occupiers have had some success in the Donetsk operational area, temporarily blocking access to the Azov Sea in Ukraine,” the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said in a statement. Ukrainian forces do not appear to have regained access to the Sea of Azov today.
Unfortunately, the situation in Mariupol, where thousands of Greek expatriates live, is very bad with the whole city having suffered severe blows.
