The bodies of Azovstal soldiers were returned to Kyiv


Dozens of bodies of Ukrainian soldiers who died defending the Azovstal steel plant have been returned to Kyiv, the AP reports.

The remains are now being identified through a DNA test, Ukrainian Army Commander Maxim Zhorin said in an exclusive report by the agency.

For months, Ukrainian troops were trapped in a besieged steel plant, preventing Russian forces from taking control of all of Mariupol.

But in May, defenders at the site finally gave up on a huge Russian steel plant.
