Ukrainian defenders at a sprawling steel plant in the port city of Mariupol said they were outnumbered and appealed to world leaders for help as they faced what might be their last stand. Russia is demanding that they lay down their arms and surrender.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in a video on social media that the situation in Mariupol remained severe. “The Russian army is blocking any efforts to organize humanitarian corridors and save our people.”
