Relatives of Azovstal fighters appeal to China's Xi
STORY: “Today we turn to Xi Jinping because he is Putin's economic partner and Putin can enter into a dialogue with him. So we ask him to have this fruitful dialogue and take our fighters to a third country, which could be Turkey, through the extraction procedure,” the wife of a Ukrainian marine, Hanna Ivleyeva, told the media.
Mariupol, which has seen the heaviest fighting in nearly three months of war, is now in Russian hands but hundreds of Ukrainian defenders still hold out in the Azovstal steelworks complex despite weeks of heavy Russian bombardment.
Very complex talks are underway to evacuate a large number of wounded soldiers from a besieged steel plant in the strategic south-eastern port of Mariupol in exchange for the release of Russian prisoners of war, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said late Friday (May 13).
Russia, which initially insisted that the defenders in the sprawling Soviet-era bunkers under the steelworks give up, has said little publicly about the talks.
