Azov regiment releases video memoirs of last days of Azovstal defense
The Azov Regiment has released a video memoir of the last days of Azovstal's defense in Mariupol. The memories were shared by the plant's defenders who survived captivity and returned home
The video is available on YouTube.
The soldiers told stories about loyalty and brotherhood, the ability to make difficult decisions that affect the lives of hundreds of people, and the enormous responsibility that only true commanders can assume.
"Mariupol is densely encircled. Azovstal, the last bastion of the Mariupol garrison, is under constant attack from enemy aircraft and artillery. Several thousand Ukrainian soldiers are desperately fighting the enemy on the plant's territory. In the bunkers, the wounded are dying in agony, unable to get proper help. What were the Azov fighters thinking at the time? What were they hoping for? What options were they considering? To make a breakthrough or to stay at Azovstal until the end?" the video description reads.
On February 22, Oleh Mudrak (call sign Sukhar), a defender of Azovstal, commander of the 1st Battalion of the Azov Regiment, released from Russian captivity on September 21, 2022, passed away.
