Taruta is a wealthy industrialist from Mariupol and former governor of the Donetsk region that includes Mariupol.
We first met him in 2014, when "NewsHour"'s Margaret Warner visited his office, and then two months later, when he was forced to work in a hotel after pro-Russian separatists seized his office and much of the Donbass.
我們第一次見到他是在2014年，當時“新聞時間”的瑪格麗特·華納 (Margaret Warner) 參觀了他的辦公室，然后兩個月后，在親俄分離主義者占領了他的辦公室和頓巴斯的大部分地區后，他被迫在一家酒店工作。
Today Russia's invasion has extended its territorial control of the Donbass into Mariupol's center.
This week, a senior Putin aide visited Mariupol, vowing to make it Russian.
It's important for all of Ukraine that Mariupol is not entirely taken over.
But Ukraine can't stop Russia from targeting civilians and soldiers in the plant, some of whom recently escaped.
When these civilians are leaving the plant, the Russians can see from their drones where they are coming from.
Is there anything that Ukraine can do to save Azovstal?
I wish all world leaders increased their pressure on Putin.
There has to be a very harsh pressure until they're all out.
But we have to do it very, very urgently.
It's already too late to save much of the city.
