1. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has confirmed in its social networks, on Tuesday evening, that its servicemen* holed up at the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol have been ordered to surrender.

Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Hanna Malyar described the evacuation operation in a separate video statement, noting that some "Ukrainian forces" remain in Azovstal.

“Fifty-three seriously injured people were evacuated from Azovstal to a medical facility in Novoazovsk for medical treatment,” she said. “Another 211 people were taken to Olenivka through the humanitarian corridor.”

An “exchange procedure” will eventually bring the evacuees home, Malyar also said.

2.  “Ukraine needs living Ukrainian heroes,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a statement Monday on the evacuation, thanking the Ukrainian military and negotiators, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the United Nations.

“The 82nd day of our defense is coming to an end. A difficult day."
