Defense of the Azovstal plant

In May 2022, the defenders of Mariupol, in the Donetsk region, after almost three months of fighting, including in a besieged bridgehead at the metallurgical plant Azovstalwere taken prisoner by the Russians. On 21 September, as part of a prisoner exchange with Russia, the Ukrainian authorities managed to free 215 military personnel, including the commanders of the defense of Mariupol and the Azovstal plant.

Five commanders from Azovstal – the commanders of the Azov Regiment Denys Prokopenko and Sviatoslav Pałamar, the commander of the 36th Marine Brigade Serhiy Volynsky and Denys Shleha and Oleh Khomenko – went to Turkey and were to stay there until the end of the war. This was part of the arrangements with Russia, in which the Turkish president was to play an important role Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
