Evacuation Of Ukrainian Fighters From Azovstal Continues. No Promises Of Their Exchange (Videos)

Click to see full-size image

On May 17, the Russian Ministry of Defence confirmed that the surrender of the militants of the nationalist Azov regiment and Ukrainian servicemen, who were blocked at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol began. Over the past day, 265 militants have laid down their arms and surrendered, including 51 seriously wounded. All those in need of medical care were sent for treatment to the hospital in Novoazovsk, Donetsk People’s Republic. The other were transferred to the village of Elenovka in the Donetsk People’s republic.

The surrender of the “garrison of Mariupol” continues. The Ukrainian fighters are disarmed, then they are sent to Novoazovsk or Elenovka.

On May 17, a Russian military reporter in Mariupol claimed that as of May 16, there were over 2.5 thousand AFU servicemen in the industrial zone, 404 of them were wounded. 55 servicemen were seriously injured. 200 corpses of dead fighters were frozen in refrigerators.

There were also three Russian prisoners, including an officer and two soldiers.

In total, 804 members of the Azov nationalist regiment were hiding in Azovstal. The others were servicemen of the 53rd, 54th, 56th separate brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the 36th separate brigade of Marines, 501st and 503 separate battalions of marines and 12 brigade The National Guard, which included “Azov”.

The military reporter added that the decision was made not to comment on the situation in Azovstal. The officials claims will be made by the Russian Ministry of Defence.

 

The Azov militants demined the road for the passage from the plant. The Russian military introduced the ceasefire regime:

 

In an attempt to justify the fall of the Ukrainian fortress, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine called the surrender of the AFU remnants from Azovstal a “delicate situation.” The Main Directorate of Intelligence of Ukraine stated that the GUR, the AFU, the border service, the National Guard, the SBU, the National Police and Azov are carrying out a special operation to rescue defenders of Mariupol blocked on the territory of the Azovstal plant. If the operation was aimed at the transfer of the nazi fighters to the Russian military, it likely succeeded.

The Kiev regime continuesly claims that all the Ukrainian militants should be exchanged to the Russian prisoners of war. The Russian military officials have not confirmed any exchange so far.

Moreover, on May 17, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin ordered to work on the proposal of the members of the State Duma to prohibit the exchange of all Ukrainian Nazis to Ukraine. He added that this issue should be worked out jointly with the Defense and Security Committee.

“You are making the right offer. Nazi criminals should not be exchanged. These are war criminals. We must do everything to ensure that they face trial” Volodin summed up.

So this is the end? They are all surrendering? I guess we won’t find out for awhile how many foreigners were part of it. And the Nazis had to demine the road they mined. Fitting conclusion. In fact, ukie nazi forces should be placed into demining groups throughout Donbas.

Yea, kind of anticlimactic…. no heroic last stand to the last man, they just surrendered like Paulus in Stalingrad. I just hope there will be no mercy for them, no green buses of Idlib and other bullshit. Other ukrainian POWs can be exchanged. These can not.

Günter Düsterhus

I understand their hatred as Germans, but who turned these people into killers? I see the CIA and the US mercenaries who are also occupying Germany and destroying it economically. Our politicians are bought puppets of the US oligarchs. Elections are rigged, media forced to lie, what can I do to send the US filth to hell?

Those unlucky ones with tattoos won’t be exchanged, so words of advice kids, think twice before shaving your head and getting nazi tattoos, it could be your life or death matter

James Brown

None of ASOV will be eligible for exchange – the DPR/LPR want them for trial.

susann immekeppel

Yes, they should demine the road they mined, but don’t exchange these criminals.

Muhammed Allah جثث فاسدة مصاصة الديك

Are only wounded and some volunteers who surrender.

The fighting will continue.

No, its all but over, the ASOV leader Prokopenko publicly posted remarks about their surrender.

Yea, you imbecile fuck. Today another 800 surrendered. Only the ‘president’ and ‘vicepresident’ nazi Kalina still sitting there in theirs rat holes.

Karl Popper: “If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”

Voltaire: “It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”

Take DNA swabs and use tape to recover trace evidence from their bodies. Confiscate their uniforms and boots. Label everything with photos and confiscated ID. Film them talking and walking so that civilian witnesses can ID them. Hold ALL POWs without exception until it can be shown there aren’t any war crimes charged to their unit, commander, or personally.

William Faulkner: “Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed”

Even then, participation in this battle using civilians as human shields is a war crime. Occupying civic structures as defensive positions thus inviting Russian defensive fire is also a crime against humanity. Holding civilians and children hostage for months underground in the Azovstal plant when credible offers of peaceful transportation to any other jurisdiction were made, is also a war crime, and a crime against humanity.

Chris Hedges: “We do not fight fascism because we expect we will win, we will fight them because they are fascists”

I don’t care if they were just following orders. They were willing to kill for Ukraine, but they weren’t wiling to defend human rights or follow widely and long held laws of war. So, at the least, they are all liable for charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, even if they didn’t pull the trigger once.

Lin Yutang: “When small men begin to cast long shadows, it means the sun is about to set.”

Agree completely. I do consider forced conscripts shoved to the front lines by Ukie leadership and nazi commanders to be eligible for exchange for Russian POW’s, who surely are suffering a horrid fate at the moment.

good4u

BTW they are not POW but POSMO

Len

That would be a good idea but unfortunately, never trust a Nazi. It would be better to send them for hard labour into Siberia on short rations for life. Only just strong enough to lay gas and oil pipes etc etc but too weak to escape or fight. Make them want to die.

Curiosity kills the cat

What type of uniforms are these from the Ukrainian soldiers?

Are they marines or Azov battalion too?

Ukraine just keeps on winning! Remember, it wasn’t really a surrender, it was an EVACUATION!

James Brown

That was last week – in different location was mutual exchange of around 40 per side.

These ASOV are not going home, they are going to trial for war crimes in Donetsk & Lugansk.

Vlad the Imposter

This batch of prisoners aren’t going to be exchanged any time soon. They’re in for an extensive and entheusiastic “de-brief” once the cameras are off them and they’ve served their propaganda purposes. They will likely benefit from “vocational training” cleaning and rebuilding the DPR / LPR over the next decade or so.

GREAT news ! But…. there were a lot more fighters ! You said there were about 2000 … But for now only 265 had surrendered and another approximately 200 were found dead inside the factory. Where is this HUGE difference coming from? Or they simply say a multiplied number to discourage attacks, or they are hidden into bunkers, waiting for Russian to clean the factory (without finding them) and later, after long time (some months??) , to exit and be free.

Great statement by Volodin : “You are making the right offer. Nazi criminals should not be exchanged. These are war criminals. We must do everything to ensure that they face trial”

Money can’t buy everything, and these human lookalike scumbags should of course never be given back to the Kiev-junta. Each and every one of these butchers should be tried and sentenced and then … well, you know what to do with them.

A “delicate” situation indeed.

Which is why Erdogan and Macron don’t want to be humiliated when both their countries brass like the U.$. and U.K. get identified.

To Vlad Putin. It will be a dishonoring and betrayal with no equivalent for the Russian men and women fighting and dying in this conflict not to make that humiliation complete with a war crimes tribunal and excoriation in a Moscow court of law that will be seeing all of them “swinging from the ends of ropes”!…

Your move Mr. Chess player!

UKRAINE IS WINNING!!!

Yup, Ukraine is totally winning! This wasn’t even a surrender at all. It was an EVACUATION, and the Russians graciously provided our Nazi troops with an armed escort for their evacuation!

Heil Bandera!!!!

Ukraine is winning decisively according to arma 3 and milsim. That’s enough proof for western bustards to rejoice.

M from Romania

just curious … is there still resistance in Azovstal and these were just some of the defenders that surrendered or is it over? Our media says nothing … On a different note. Romania’s Vote in Eurovision was canceled and changed to an average vote of other states, because NOBODY voted for Ukraine, so it “must have been faked”. Just so russians know where Romania stands ! Good luck boys!

Quote Reuters: “More than 250 Ukrainian troops surrender as Mariupol siege appears over”. Their message: siege is over.

The sequence might have been like this: 1. AFU on peripherals of Azovstal negotiated a surrender. 2. Kiev in the damage control put a narrative “Mission compelled /evacuation” 3. Now the question is what is going to do the main force of AFU in middle of Azovstal. Are they going to fight till last man or are they going to go out with tail between legs

There might have been less Ukie soldiers in Mariupol city than claimed 8,100. First Kiev claimed 14,000-20,000. Then early March RF intelligence mentioned 8,100. I’m not surprised if they real figure of Ukies have been less than 6,000 when war begun 24 Feb.

Huge symbolic victory for Russia, the DPR and LPR. The Azov fighters are headed to Donetsk where they will face trial and sentences will be handed out for their crimes. There will be no prisoner exchange of Azov fighters for Russian troops, don’t believe the BS lies of the Ukrainian government trying to spin this Russian victory as a negotiated deal, a PR stunt. This is the beginning of the end for Ukraine. Ukraine is running out of fuel, huge lines at the gas pumps for Ukrainians, the country has less than 10 days of gasoline reserves and after the gasoline runs out the people will begin to protest and demand an end to this unwinnable war.

They will remember that Russians treated them fairly. It will spread. Overall, the only logical move. Perhaps some concessions can finally be made by politicians to end this conflict altogether.

The Russians should not “end this conflict” until all the south is secured along with Kharkov, Sumy, Donbass. In the south talking Odessa and west to Moldova. After that happens then peace can be talked about.

For what purpose? To make rich richer and poor even more poor and in a wheelchair?

TomSawyer

Russians never treated prisoners well – not even their own soldiers

James Brown

You mean the Soviets? Who responded to the invading Nazi German’s refusal to treat Soviet POW’s as such & put huge masses of them in open camps to starve and dehydrate in 1941? Many Soviet POW’s were also sent to Nazi concentration camps. That treatment begets the same in response.

lol. oh the fail tard army trying hard to erase this loss bwahahahahahahahahaaaaaaa Lou hoo hoo hoo ser

They do not shoot prisoners in the knees as Asow and other ukronazis do.

James Brown

It is wise to treat these ASOV pigs well for this moment. It disrupts the US/Kiev Regime BS propaganda narrative about the ‘savage Russians’. Which is exactly why there is virtual silence about these events in today’s western MSM. It means other far less committed Ukrainian AUF conscripts might well start to surrender, if they see that even these most-wanted ASOV pigs are being treated okay. Revenge is dish best served cold, and these ASOV pigs can be tried later for their war crimes against east civilians.

So much bravery and heroism, meanwhile taking hostages and hiding behind women and kids, not so long ago they were saying they’ll fight to the end, didn’t they? If they were going to surrender why they didn’t do that 2 months ago when had a chance. I guess the so called accomplished mission was to completely obliterate the city and surrender afterwards.
