“For almost four months, they (the Russians) have dreamed of controlling Severodonetsk where, out of 100,000 inhabitants, around 10,000 are still there, not counting the victims”, indicated the governor on Telegram messaging.
According to him, “the Russian army loses hundreds of fighters, but finds reserves and continues to destroy Severodonetsk”. But “our soldiers hold the defense,” he said.
Severodonetsk has been under constant bombardment, including street fighting, for several weeks. The three bridges that linked it to the neighboring town of Lysytchansk are now destroyed.
