According to her, Ukraine does not have the opportunity to release Azovstal by military means. The most important common task for all of Ukraine and the whole world is to save the lives of the defenders of Mariupol.

On the evening of March 16, Azov commander Denis Prokopenko said that to save lives, the Mariupol garrison was fulfilling the approved decision of the high military command and hoped for the support of the Ukrainian people.

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine stated that all possible international organizations and practically all the world leaders were involved in saving the defenders of Azovstal, but Russian President Vladimir Putin disagrees.

And the families of the defenders of Mariupol urged even the head of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping, to help them.
