The onslaught on a steel mill in Mariupol, where hundreds of Ukrainians are holed up in the city's last pocket of resistance, continues at "full strength." ITV News has been told the situation at the Azovstal plant "gets more critical" as the Russian military abandons assurances of a ceasefire meant to allow hundreds of civilians to evacuate. The steel plant now represents the last bastion of Ukrainian resistance in Mariupol. Images released by Russian media channels showcased shocking scenes of destruction in the region. The city's head of police patrol Mykhailo Vershynin, speaking from the steel plant, said: "The situation is getting worse, it gets more critical. "The onslaught on the plant is at its full strength, and mind that Russians promised the ceasefire, but they didn’t stick to their promise. "As is usual here, the storm groups went on attack. It is really hard to restrain them at this range. It’s constant artillery fire, it is constantly, and the connection is very unstable. "That’s why we can disappear sometimes." • 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/
