"Azovstal. As of now, it is impossible to release Azovstal by military means. The defenders of Azovstal do not want to surrender. This is worthy of respect. The Russians do not agree to 'extraction'. This is a reality, but this is not surprising from the Russians. What to do? The government is considering different options. None of them are perfect. But we are not looking for an ideal option, but a working one," Vereschuk wrote on her Telegram channel.

According to her, as a first step, Ukraine offered the Russians an exchange.

"We are taking out our seriously wounded guys from Azovstal along the humanitarian corridor. At the same time, we are returning the captured Russians according to the standard rules for the exchange of prisoners of war," the minister said.
