Russia is continuing intense shelling of the easternmost city under Ukraine’s control, Severodonetsk, which looks set to be the war’s next major battlefield. With fighting underway on the city’s outskirts, Luhansk governor Serhiy Haidai said that “the Russians are destroying Severodonetsk, like Mariupol.”
Russia now says it controls the Azovstal steel plant, the sprawling complex that had been the final battleground of Mariupol. Russia’s Defense Ministry said 2,439 Ukrainian fighters there have surrendered in recent days — a figure that drastically exceeds other estimates. Ukraine has not confirmed Moscow’s claims that the entire facility is now in Russian hands.
