Heavy combat in Donbass again, Severodonetsk particularly difficult

According to Ukrainian sources, there are still thousands of civilians in Severodonetsk. “Of the 100,000 inhabitants, about 10,000 are still there, not counting the victims,” ​​the governor of the Donbass sub-region in Luhansk, Serhiy Hajday, said on Thursday. The Ukrainian army is “holding back the enemy as best it can”. The Russian army is losing “hundreds of fighters” there, but it is always bringing in new supplies. They “continue the destruction of Sieverodonetsk”. It is the last major city in the Luhansk region that Russia has yet to conquer.

Finally, Russian troops appeared on the verge of taking full control of the city. They destroyed three bridges to Lysychansk, leaving the remaining Ukrainian troops largely isolated.

In the northeast of the city of Sumi, according to local governor Dmytro Schywyzkii, four people were killed by Russian rockets overnight. Six other people were injured. The Dobropillia district on the Russian border was also bombed.
