On April 21, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to President Vladimir Putin that Mariupol, which had been in the area of hostilities since the beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, had been taken. However, according to the minister, Azovstal “the remnants of the nationalist formations” took refuge. Putin ordered to cancel the assault and block the plant. On April 26, during a conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Putin said that Mariupol was “liberated and there is no fighting there.”
Evacuation of people from the territory of “Azovstal” became one of the main topics of the meeting between UN Secretary General António Guterres and Putin in Moscow, and then Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv. Zelensky told the UN Secretary General that Ukraine is ready for immediate negotiations with Russia on this issue. The Kremlin felt that there was nothing to discuss, since “President [Putin] said quite clearly— civilians can get out and go in any direction. The military must lay down their arms and also leave.
Guterres suggested that Putin should involve UN and International Committee of the Red Cross. According to the Secretary General's office, the President “agreed in principle” with this initiative. The UN has created a team to coordinate this process.
