All women, children and elderly people have been successfully evacuated from the Mariupol steel plant under Russian bombardment, Ukraine's deputy prime minister has said. Ukrainian fighters in the Azovstal plant are the final stand against a complete takeover by Russian troops of Mariupol. Civilians have been inside the plant, alongside the resistance, as Russian fire continued in the area - making evacuation operations difficult. On Saturday, Iryna Vereshchuk said: "The president’s order has been carried out: all women, children and the elderly have been evacuated from Azovstal. This part of the Mariupol humanitarian operation has been completed". • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/
