Ukraine Azovstal plant fighters STOP Russian attempt to breach Mariupol stronghold.

This is the moment Ukrainian soldiers repel an attempt to breach part of the Azovstal plant - where freedom fighters continue to mount a brave resistance - after a “traitor” gave away their top secrets.

The footage was filmed at the Azovstal iron and steel plant in the under-siege Ukrainian city of Mariupol.

Russian troops stormed the city on 19th April and destroyed large areas. However, pockets of organised resistance fighters remain at the plant, refusing to surrender to the invaders’ demands.

Fighters of the Azov Battalion, a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine, are currently holed up in the battered Mariupol plant.

The Ukrainian soldiers had to fend off a Russian attempt to breach their system of tunnels after a “traitor” gave away their top secrets.

The Ukrainian Centre for Strategic Communications said on 12th May: “New video of the Battle for Azovstal: Defenders of Mariupol continue the heroic struggle.

"Yesterday, the enemy did not shy away from an attempt to storm the grounds. Our main goal is to block the exits of the system of underground tunnels, which the enemy was shown by a traitor.

“Despite this, our Defenders of Mariupol are trying to counterattack, risking everything,” said Petro Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor.”
