Russia-Ukraine Conflict - Russia Conquers Azov Steelworks, Zelenskyj Wants A Compensation Fund

In Mariupol, the last Ukrainian soldiers surrendered. President Volodymyr Zelenskyj calls for a global fund for victims of Russian attacks.

In the southern Ukrainian port of Mariupol, which had been under siege for months, the last Ukrainian soldiers have surrendered to the Russians. The Azov steelworks was "completely liberated," the Russian army reported. The last 531 Ukrainian fighters surrendered, said Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry. As a result, the strategically located city on the Azov Sea is now completely under Russian control.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expects that Russia's military will now concentrate more on conquering the Donbass region in the east of the country. During the night he called on the West and other friendly states to set up a fund for victims of Russian attacks together with Ukraine.

"Anyone who has suffered from Russia's actions" must be able to be compensated for losses suffered, Zelenskyj said. The fund could be regulated in a multilateral agreement and draw in part from Russian capital and property frozen or confiscated abroad, Zelensky said.

According to Gasum, the Russian gas company Gazprom had announced that gas would no longer flow from 6 a.m. today. The reason is that Gasum refused to pay bills in rubles in the future. However, Gasum has carefully prepared for such a situation and will be able to continue to supply all customers in the coming months.
