“In a few weeks Moscow…” And civilians flee – TIME


Donbass remains the center of the Ukrainian resistance in the war against Russia. The battle is raging in Severodonetsk and according to the United States in a few weeks, Moscow will take control of Lugansk. “Ukraine is on the verge of losing the eastern Lugansk region to Russia – declared the governor who warned that his unarmed army urgently needed faster shipments of Western weapons.” The Russians control most of the city.”

And Ukraine returned a few days ago to demand new weapons, warning that its army is losing on the front line and that it has run out of ammunition. “Now it all depends on what the West will provide us with,” declared Vadim Skipetsky, head of Ukrainian military intelligence. According to Mikhailo Podolak, presidential adviser, Ukraine loses 100-200 men per day. Head of state Volodymyr Zelensky said that despite the difficulties, the army is resisting in the besieged city of Severodonetsk.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people continue to flee heavy fighting in eastern Ukraine as Russian and Ukrainian forces battle for control of key towns and villages in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Dozens of Ukrainians left Prokovsk today on a special evacuation train bound for Dnipro and other cities in the West. The train was carrying about 300 people, mostly women, children and the elderly, who were forced to leave as the fighting approached their homes.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is trying to reassure his people in a video message posted on his Facebook profile: “Remember how Russia hoped to conquer all of Donbass in early May? We are on the 108th day of the war, in June. Donbass is still holding out . ” And again: “We must do everything we can to make the occupiers repent of all this and hold them responsible for every murder and every blow inflicted on Ukraine.”
