Russian troops entered the plant on the third day
Captain Svitoslav, deputy commander of Ukraine’s Azov Regiment, battles Russian forces inside the Palmar Steel Plant. He told Ukraine’s Channel 24 that Russian forces had entered the plant on the third day and were being given a befitting reply. Palmar said, the fierce struggle is going on. Adviser to Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs Anton Gerashenko said Russian troops managed to break in with the help of an electrician familiar with the plant’s map.
In a video posted late Wednesday, Gerashenko said he (the electrician) showed them the underground tunnels that lead to the plant. “With the help of information received from the fraudster, the Russian soldiers entered these tunnels yesterday,” he said. However, the Kremlin (Russia) has denied the entry of troops inside the plant. Palmer called on the world to put pressure on Russia and allow more civilians and wounded soldiers to leave the plant safely.
