MAZURENKO ALYONA – WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2022, 17:39 Commander of the 36th Separate Naval Infantry Brigade of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhiy Volynsky (Volina) in a new video message asks to apply an “extract” to the defenders of Mariupol, following the example of the operation in Dunkirk in 1940. Source: Volynsky’s page on Facebook: “62,“, … Quote: “For 62 days we fought in complete encirclement, now we are territorially located at the Azovstal plant, we carry out tasks together with units of the Azov regiment and other units that were surrounded … In our group there are more than 600 wounded guys of various conditions, they really need medical care, there are no conditions, no treatment, no personnel who could help them. Civilians are also injured, to whom we provide assistance to the best of our ability. With us are hundreds of civilians, dozens of children, many disabled people, the elderly. The situation is difficult, there are problems with water.” Details: Volynsky recalled that he appealed to world leaders and diplomats so that the defenders of Mariupol were heard and that they applied the “extraction” procedure following the example of Operation Dynamo (Dunkirk operation, Dunkirk evacuation) during World War II. So, in 1940, the British military and France were surrounded by German troops and blocked in the area of ​​​​the city of Dunkirk. Troops accumulated on the coast were threatened with disaster, but Hitler ordered to stop the offensive and “not come closer to Dunkirk than 10 km.” During the rescue operation, more than 300,000 French and British soldiers were evacuated Quote: “Today my main message is: save the Mariupol garrison. Apply the “extraction” procedure to us. It’s not 1940, it’s 2022. People will just die here. The wounded will die, and the living will die in battle, civilians are dying here with us in bunkers, private houses and high-rise buildings, where they are simply shot.” Volynsky added that the defenders of Mariupol hope for help. Background: Earlier, Ukrainian intelligence reported that it had information that the Russian authorities planned to send units of the National Guard and the FSB to storm the positions of Ukrainian defenders at Azovstal. civilians were injured and are under rubble. At a meeting with Putin, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the invaders had taken control of Mariupol, and then added that Ukrainian defenders controlled Azovstal. Putin said on camera that there was no storming the plant necessary, but after that, shelling of Azovstal only intensified. President Volodymyr Zelensky argues that Ukrainian forces still lack the funds to conduct a military operation to unblock Mariupol. On April 23, the Azov Regiment published the first part of a video from the cellars of the enemy-blocked Azovstal plant in Mariupol, where children are hiding from Russian bombs. On April 24, Azovstal released a new video from the Azovstal underground. On it, women who hid with children in a shelter said that they had only a few days of water and food supplies left.
