According to the U.S. Secretary of State, people remain on the territory of the Azovstal plant.

The United States calls for continuing to organize humanitarian corridors for the evacuation of civilians from Mariupol. This was stated on Tuesday at a press conference by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

According to him, there are still many people in Mariupol, “who need to be released [from the city].” “Humanitarian aid should be allowed [to Mariupol],” he said.

Blinken noted that the other day from Mariupol (apparently, it was about the evacuation of civilians from the territory of the Azovstal plant) a successful exit of civilians was organized, when “about 100 people” were withdrawn along humanitarian corridors. The Secretary of State also claimed that after the closure of this humanitarian corridor, the Russian military resumed shelling Azovstal, despite the fact that civilians allegedly continue to remain there.
