Russian 2S1 Gvozdika 122mm SP Howitzers firing towards Mariupol – the video goes on to show that apparently the rounds they're firing are stuffed full of leaflets calling on Ukrainian troops to surrender. I have no idea how effective that is as a method for distributing leaflets. pic.twitter.com/MGZ4JjuWFT

Kiev refuses to acknowledge the latest mass surrender in #Mariupol. Presidential Advisor Arestovych instead claims that the Marines somehow teleported into Azovstal and reinforced the Azov Nazis. The largest Ukrainian mass surrender so far is becoming a second Snake Island. pic.twitter.com/58g5g1V9cC

On April 12, the largest group of the AFU soldiers surrendered surrendered in Mariupol. Another attempt to break out from the trap in Mariupol, was confirmed.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, 1,026 Ukrainian servicemen of the 36th Marine Brigade voluntarily laid down arms and surrendered in the city of Mariupol, near the Illich plant
151 wounded Ukrainian servicemen of the 36th Marine Brigade were provided with primary medical aid on the spot, after which they were all taken to the Mariupol city hospital for treatment.
A video with a wounded Ukrainian marine was recently published. In the video, the young man talks about an attempted escape from the «Illich» plant in Mariupol. He notes that 1,500 people tried to escape, two of whom wanted to surrender, but then they were caught and disappeared.
In the end, about 1,000 Ukrainian servicemen surrendered, while 500 AFU soldiers were reportedly killed as they broke through the blockade of Russian troops toward the village of Zachatovka.
Fierce battles continue in the LPR and DPR, some clashes break out on the border of the Kherson and Dnipropetrovsk regions as well, but there are no significant changes on the front lines.
The regrouping and redeployment of the Russian Armed Forces in the Slobozhansky and Donetsk-Lugansk directions continue.
Intense shelling targets the Severodonetsk-Lysychansk agglomeration. Heavy artillery fire usually precedes the attempts of the LPR infantry to break through the AFU defence in the city.
Intense artillery shelling continues on the outskirts of Kharkiv. Russian forces target the areas of the AFU concentration. On April 12, local sources reported about two dozen explosions in the Saltovka region. Russian Federation is methodically striking at the identified facilities in Kharkiv.
The AFU is attempting to counterattack northwest of Kharkiv in the direction of Zolochev – Kozachya Lopan. Zolochev is under the AFU control, and the village of Dergachi is a conditional neutral zone. The AFU is trying to counterattack in the area near Izyum in the direction of Brazhkivka and Sukhaya Kamenka as well.
At the same time, the threat level in Russia’s western regions, bordering Ukraine was increased.
On April 12, employees of Russian security agencies discovered a hidden archive with the personal files of Ukrainian security officers in Kherson’s children’s regional hospital.
Meanwhile, Russian cruise missiles continue to destroy AFU facilities throughout Ukraine.
During the night, high-precision sea- and air-based missiles destroyed 2 large missile and artillery weapons depots of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near Sadovoe and Chudnov. 4 Ukrainian helicopters – 2 Mi-24 and 2 Mi-8 – were also destroyed at Mirgorod military airfield.
Operational-tactical aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces hit 46 military assets of Ukraine.
The situation in the southern and eastern regions of Ukraine remains tense. There is a lot of hotspots of fierce fighting along the front lines, where heavy artillery shelling does not stop. In Mariupol, the AFU have almost lost the Illich plant, and the seaport area. The Russian strategic offence in Mariupol is intensifying. The large Russian offensive on the Donbass front lines is expected in the coming weeks.
