Moscow claimed this week full control over Luhansk but the governor and other Ukrainian officials stated that their troops still retained a small portion of the province.
Haidai stated to The Associated Press that Luhansk was not fully captured despite the Russians having engaged all of their arsenal in order to accomplish this goal. “Fierce battles continue in several villages near the border. To advance, the Russians rely on artillery and tanks to leave scorched earth.
He said that Russia’s forces “attack every building they believe could be a fortified location.” They aren’t stopped simply by civilians being left there, and they die in the homes and courtyards. They continue firing.
Occupied Sievierodonetsk meanwhile “is on the brink of a humanitarian disaster,” the governor wrote via social media. “The Russians have completely destroyed the critical infrastructure, and they cannot repair anything.”
