Outside the besieged city of Mariupol, the city is Ground Zero. The Azovstal Steel Plant stands as Mariupol’s last line of defense.

Russian President Vladimir putting has scrapped plans to storm the plant and ordered soldiers to instead encircle it.

“There will be nobody left in this area. They will be dead,” said George Kurparashvili, Azov Battalion Commander, “all the children. I’m not talking about the soldiers, but the civilians will be eliminated and it will be on us, the civilized world.”

Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelenskyy warns that his troops do not have enough “serious and heavy” weapons to defeat the Russians there.

The U.S. is responding. President Biden unveiled his latest presidential draw-down. Any more money would need congressional approval.

“We’re in a critical window,” said the president. “Now of time where they’re going to set the stage for the next phase of this war.”

He Defense Department is now set to pull weapons and equipment like howitzers, ammo and drones from U.S. inventories to send to Ukraine.

“Putin has failed to achieve his grand ambitions on the battlefield,” Biden said. “After weeks of shelling, Kyiv still stands.”

In a move to further isolate Moscow, Russian-affiliated ships are now banned from American ports. In Mariupol, the help can’t come soon enough.

Ukrainian soldiers are remaining defiant and resisting Russian attacks and ignoring their calls to surrender.
