Volodymyr Zhelensky promises ‘heroic defense’ in fierce fighting in Chevroletonetsk
Intense fighting continued on Wednesday in Severodonetsk, in which Moscow claims to have taken control of residential areas, while Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky praised the “heroic” defense of this important city in Donbass. The Russians claim to have “completely liberated” the residential areas of this strategic city for control of the entire Donbass coalfields in eastern Ukraine. “It continues to acquire its industrial zone and neighboring areas,” Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told a rare television conference on Tuesday.

Mr. Keitai even speaks of “mission impossible”. “All forces and all reserves are mobilized by the enemy Russian army, who must cut off the main Lyczynsk-Bakmut road in order to capture Severodonetsk. They shell very violently on Lyczynsk,” the governor said.
