World news says it’s been more than two months since Russian forces started their assault against the town of Severodonetsk. Yet, despite the overwhelming firepower, they’re still unable to dislodge the armed Ukrainian opposition — or stop the supply lines that supply Severodonetsk’s remaining defences with a constant supply of ammunition and weapons.
Despite the heavy loss, the intense Ukrainian resistance to Severodonetsk forced Russians to focus their firepower on the smallest area possible and has impeded efforts to capture the remaining 10 per cent of the Luhansk area they aren’t in control of.
By world news, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared the seizure of Ukraine’s eastern Luhansk and Donetsk regions as one of the goals of the Moscow-led particular military campaign, which began in February. At present, the operation is a large deadlock, and a significant portion of Donetsk is out of the Russians’ ability to reach.
Russian force is making small gains. The Russian Defense Ministry said Sunday that the town of Metelkino, located southeast of Severodonetsk, was captured. However, the Russians aim to ensure that the Ukrainian forces defending the two cities, Lysychansk and Severodonetsk, remain far from being achieved.
According to world news, in a war lagging in agility and imagination, The Russians have turned to one strategy, which is to use a massive indirect fire on any and any Ukrainian positions regardless of collateral damage.
The objective is to destroy everything that can be defended. The deployment of troops in the field to capture and hold urban areas is not as frequent and not as effective.
In the video from Ukrainian Special Forces operating in the region released over the weekend, an unidentified Ukrainian soldier said: “They are throwing everything they have, all the munitions they have. It doesn’t matter for them if it’s our positions or civilian areas, they wipe everything from the face of the earth, and then they use artillery, and then they start moving forward little by little.”
