Quote: "There are definitely more than a hundred civilians left at Azovstal."

Details: According to Kyrylenko, there are up to 100,000 residents still in Mariupol. "It is quite difficult to say which of them wants to leave," he added.

Commenting on the information about the resumption of the shelling of Azovstal by the Russians, Kyrylenko said: "It is easier to say when the shelling does not happen than when it happens. Aviation and artillery are almost constantly at work there. The shelling stops and there is a ceasefire when evacuation is taking place either from Azovstal itself or of local civilians nearby. "

Background: On 7 May, Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said that all women, children and the elderly had been evacuated from the Azovstal area in Mariupol.
