Mariupol: looks like Ukrainian marines started to surrender en masse. Russian war correspondents claim that 2 battalions of the 36th Marine Brigade laid down their arms yesterday (up to 1000 men, if true this is the biggest surrender so far), the remnants of the brigade made it to the Azov Steelworks.
For the record, this resource is absolutely fantastic and Jerome is the kindest, sweetest and the most decent person


Is the surrender confirmed because Ukraine is saying otherwise.


Interesting to see the news inside Mariupol. Good at least that they’re still fighting strong and having a bit of success. Not trying to be too optimistic, since it will fall eventually, but they’re making a great stand to the end, whenever that may be.

Where are all the heroes?

It’s one thing to fight bravely and honourably for your homeland. It’s another thing altogether to use fellow civilian compatriots as human shields.


When you manage to have the two thirds of a city’s population flee to safety, you definitely aren’t using them as human shields.


I see the Armed Forces of Ukraine pulled up one mechanized brigade to the South Bug direction
