8:25 am: Russians focus on Severodonetsk

The Russian forces are getting closer every day a little closer to Severodonetsk, a city of some 100,000 inhabitants before the war, the capture of which is essential for them to fully control the Donbass. So much so that “Russian troops have advanced to be so close that they can fire mortars” on Severodonetsk, assured Wednesday Serguiï Gaïdaï, the governor of the region. According to him, the city “is simply being destroyed”.

“The situation in the city is very difficult. Yesterday, there was already fighting on the outskirts”, continued the governor, who estimated that “next week will be decisive”. However, he said Wednesday evening, the city “is not surrounded”, contrary to what an official of the pro-Russian separatists said. About 15,000 people are still there and in the surrounding villages, he said, adding that the overwhelming majority of them did not want to move despite the incessant shelling.
