Families of Mariupol’s last defending troops plead for their lives – BBC News

The United Nations and the International Red Cross are trying to rescue more civilians from the besieged city of Mariupol. But Ukrainian forces have accused Russia of breaching the latest ceasefire.
Around 200 civilians are still trapped in a huge steel factory complex, along with city’s last Ukrainian defenders.   Relatives of those soldiers are pleading for them to also be brought out alive.  Our correspondent Laura Bicker, has sent this report from Dnipro.

    Why would you let your son go fight together with azov ? And now you crying that your son will be killed 10/10 logic

  5. Pathfinder Klux on May 9, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Ask yourself why 200 civilians is still in there when thousands of citizens had been evacuated by UN and Red Cross. Why are you not appealing to the Azov Nazis regiment to release the remaining citizens? Is BBC and the Nazis in cahoot whining for more ceasefires? was it to allow an avenue for those Nazis to escape? Its repulsive to see Ukrainian Nazis @2.30 exploiting innocent children by arming them to be killed.. Its the same exploitation by Hitler and BBC is silent on such abhorent activities.

    During the last evacuation from the territory of the Azovstal plant, the occupiers separated the woman and her little 4-year-old daughter Alice. The mother remained in a filtration camp on the territory of the so-called "DPR".
    Today, on Mother’s Day, only a child arrived at the destination in Zaporizhia, the mother’s whereabouts are currently unknown!
    We ask the world community to intervene and return the child to its mother.

    Azov Nazis taking human shields finally letting then go

  14. Man Delorean on May 9, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Since one death is tragic, a million is a statistic, just like out American 33 million? 33 billion… Both just sound like a lot.
    I try to picture a packed stadium .. Locally 35,000 sports stadium …
    20,000 graves from a city is horrible, bet 3/4th civilians

  15. seb g on May 9, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Russia has had this area captured except the steel factory for a while, it is Russia and DPR that allows Red Cross and civilians to evacuate while the Ukrainians are the ones who haven’t let them go. The Russians have given them many opportunities to surrender yet the refuse to

  16. LT Brutus Q on May 9, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    f I were the Ukrainian Mariupol commander I would order a full SURPRISE counter attack on the Russians weakest flank to attempt a breakout capturing their equipment /ammo and give RasPUTIN a blackeye for his May 9th parade. I believe this can succeed there is nothing to lose than staying in static defense. If these brave defenders are going to die let it be in a glorious firefight like the "Charge of the light brigade in Crimea war 1854".

  17. Berto A on May 9, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    fool me once shame on you.
    fool me twice…….

  18. Bishop Leo on May 9, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Just surrender and save your self

  19. pni pni on May 9, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Stop nazi ukraine

  20. Mr. Schnibli on May 9, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Every war is wrong and this needs to end as fast as possible. And Putin is the agressor, no doubt about that. But the media needs to be at least a little bit more unbiased here. A simple excample is right here in this clip. At 2:08 we are hearing about worrying mothers from members of the Asow-Unit. Just google what the Asow-Unit is and what it stands for. Serious journalism should be unbiased and give a clear picture of reality. Its not just black and white here, its not that easy. The World isnt..

  22. Lisa Brian on May 9, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    You lost me when the correspondent said “According to this unverified footage released by Ukrainian Azov Unit.”

  23. Visko Van Der Merwe on May 9, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    I no longer believe any reports. I have no proof that anything is true or false.

  24. Lizard King on May 9, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    You die hero’s death or you surrender with dignity. I don’t know what’s in beteen those two choices.

    AZOV NAZIS were giving multiple times to surrender

  27. Dick Money on May 9, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    On the one hand zelensky wants them to fight to the death. On the other hand the people want people from other countries to save them by fighting to the death. Does media really need to report every batturd crazy statement from people suffering an active trauma diagnosis ? Ukraine was another dysfunctional basket case before the war and Biden is enabling it to continue by financing crazy.

  28. Ishit Unot on May 9, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Last days fighting in a bunker does that remind you of any one/or regime who knew the game was up but allowed the suffering to continue.

  29. the lazyhorse on May 9, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Civilians are hostage of Azov, and it is plain crime. And media looks the other way.

  30. menatol on May 9, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Well done BBC yet again let’s put even more negative news

  31. Mugula Muguler on May 9, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    They may never surrender but they may be given a chance to get out alive. You must be naive to think that you can have both. Surrender and save your lives.

  32. Serv The King on May 9, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    I have zero sympathy for Nazism.

  33. Joseph Mccrory on May 9, 2022 at 7:38 pm

  34. Mark Sias on May 9, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Time to surrender. They have done all they can. The rest will carry on. These brave men should be saved. Ukraine should order them to survive. Otherwise the Ukrainian government will lose my support if Ukraine needlessly let these brave people die.

  35. WEST Brown on May 9, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Bias BBC will not tell the truth. Where were y’all bbc when UK US Nato was bombing syria libya iraq killing millions? UK need to notice what putin said. UK is small we can wipe them out of the earth.

  36. the lazyhorse on May 9, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Using civilians to get world attention thru media and not to surrender. Azov is a neonazi murderer who afraid to die.

  37. Ngqondo Zulu on May 9, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Anything, tell them to surrender, remove Zalensky

  38. Monwabisi Peter on May 9, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    They can’t plead now for rescue they were given enough opportunity for that, they chose to be stubborn. Trample them Russia 💪 🙌

  39. Nilda Sibonga on May 9, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Lord Jesus please help Ukraine 🇵🇭🇺🇦

  40. Gene Howard on May 9, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Why did they tell us that all of the civilians had been evacuated?

  41. Jangan Marah on May 9, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Why Ukrainian forces and Azov militants used innocent civilians as human shields?

    Why not allow these civilians walk out free and let the Russian forces storm those cowards and roast them to ashes…

  42. Gigi on May 9, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    There are tons of Russian bots here turning themselves loose, posting under a variety of false names, claiming all kinds of concerns and pretending to be moved by compassion and thirst for justice. They are easily identified: their profiles are empty and they have no subscribers either. Before you waste your time and energy, take it into consideration!

  43. Monwabisi Peter on May 9, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Kill them like dogs Russia 😂😂

  44. Pat Mat on May 9, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    No one is going to let those Nazis Out of those Catacombs of Azovstal

  45. Pradel Elien on May 9, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    The Ukrainians are legally oppressed 👍👍👍 may God protect them 🙏

  46. Bob Jones on May 9, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Western terrorist and traitors !

  47. Darius Stone on May 9, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Go Putin you about to take over Ukraine and Poland soon

  48. Dexter Love on May 9, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Ukrainians said they will die for Ukraine. That time has come and Russia will grant you your wish. War is not a game, and I feel like the leaders of Ukraine have made it a game. Ukraine needs to beg for forgiveness and stop this war. Wake up, Ukraine.
