Ukraine live: Severodonetsk close to falling

Severodonetsk close to falling

Ukrainian forces appeared close to losing the strategic city of Severodonetsk to the advancing Russian army Wednesday. 

Russian forces “now control 70% of Severodonetsk”, Sergei Gaïdaï, governor of the Lugansk region, wrote on Telegram.

“If in two or three days the Russians take control of Severodonetsk, they will install artillery and mortars there and will bombard more intensely Lyssytchansk”, a neighbouring city located on the other side of the Donets river in the Donbas region, added Gaïdaï. 

“Russia is making moderate but steady gains,” said a Western security official on the condition of anonymity. 

However, they pointed out that the Ukrainians are “again on the offensive” in the Kherson region (southern Ukraine) in Russian hands and “gaining ground”.
