Ukraine continues to be one of the main topics in the Turkish media. Reports of Russia's use of phosphorus bombs against defenders of Mariupol at the Azovstal plant have been widely reported in the media.

Thus, the Hurriyet newspaper quotes the adviser to the mayor of Mariupol Petro Andriushchenko, who said that the Russian occupiers used incendiary or phosphorus bombs.

"The combustion temperature is about 2-2.5 thousand degrees Celsius. It is almost impossible to stop the burning. Hell came down to earth."

The publication recalls that despite signing a treaty banning chemical weapons, Russia has accumulated the world's largest stockpile of chemical weapons, including poisonous paralyzing gases such as sarin and biological weapons such as anthrax bacteria.

Hurriyet notes that since its intervention in Syria in 2015, Russia has provided protection and military support to the Syrian government, which has carried out chemical attacks against its civilians.

The Sabah newspaper notes that the resistance of Ukrainian soldiers at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol continues.

"Russia is throwing incendiary and phosphorus bombs 9M22C at the plant. When phosphorus is used as a bomb, it causes disaster. In addition, these chemical weapons cause severe burns to the body. Moreover, when a reaction begins in the human body, it becomes impossible to change the situation," the newspaper writes.

The Turkish leading TV channel NTV also prepared a report on the bombing of Mariupol and the situation in the Black Sea.

It reports about strikes on the plant, attempts by several countries around the world to help evacuate those at the Azovstal plant and about the Moscow cruiser.
