DPR head: Foreign fighters found in Azovstal plant

Head of the self-proclaim Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin (pictured) said on Saturday that foreign citizens were found among those who surrendered after Russian troops took control of the Azovstal iron and steelworks plant.

Pushilin added that there is a possibility some Ukrainian fighters remain at the plant. "We do not rule out that someone could still be hiding there… We've been looking through every room, every corner. I have no doubt that we will find whoever may still be there," he stressed.

On Friday, the Russian Defense Ministry announced it took full control of the plant after the remaining 531 Ukrainian troops laid down their arms. Pushilin also stressed that 6 Ukrainian soldiers died while trying to blow up ammunition depots at Azovstal after the others surrendered.
