Russia claims 959 Azov defenders have surrendered - DW News.

Ukrainian military officials say they still hope fighters extracted from the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol could be exchanged for Russian prisoners of war. However, Russian lawmakers plan to take up a resolution that would prevent the exchange of Azov Regiment fighters on Wednesday. The soldiers held out for months inside the Azovstal steelworks plant while Mariupol was under siege.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, nearly 1,000 Ukrainian holed up at the works have surrendered this week — many of whom are wounded. They are reported to have been taken to a reopened former penal colony in Russian-controlled territory. It's unclear how many fighters still remain at the sprawling site which became the last bastion of Ukrainian resistance within Mariupol.
