Explosions rang out and thick smoke rose from the Azovstal steelworks in the Ukrainian city of Mariupol on Thursday (May 12). Russian forces have also continued to bombard the steelworks , the last bastion of Ukrainian defenders in a city now almost completely controlled by Russia after more than two months of siege. Ukraine's Azov Regiment holed up inside it said Russia was bombing and trying to storm it. Ukraine was seeking to swap Russian prisoners of war with the wounded soldiers in Azovstal. Ukraine says it is likely that tens of thousands of people have been killed in Mariupol. Ukrainian authorities say between 150,000 and 170,000 of the city's 400,000 residents are still living there amid the Russian-occupied ruins. The mayor said that unless medical care was restored and water systems repaired, epidemics would break out.
