Connection with Azov Regiment recovered after it was lost for a day. Russian troops entered Azovstal territory
Mariupol Mayor Vadym Boichenko: “Unfortunately, today contact with the guys has been lost. There is no contact to understand what is happening there, whether they are safe or not. We were in contact yesterday, but today, unfortunately, I can’t comment on anything. We pray for our heroic guys and I thank them for the feat they have done today for our whole country – they held back the enemy and gave us more time to prepare. And they are real, courageous, and heroic defenders of Mariupol. We thank them for that.”
He recalled that heavy fighting was taking place in the besieged port city every day on the territory of “Azovstal fortress.”
As of the evening of May 4, 2022, the Ukrainian authorities have recovered connection with the defenders of Mariupol who stay in the territory of the Azovstal steelworks. Russian troops have already entered the Azovstal’s territory.
