Informe de la situación de la guerra en Ucrania – día 106
June 9, 2022 - La batalla por la ciudad ucraniana de Severodonetsk es brutal y determinará el destino de la región de Donbás, dijo el presidente Zelensky, mientras las tropas rusas siguen devastando la ciudad en un ataque dirigido a controlar el este de Ucrania, informa Reuters.
Serhiy Haidai, Ukraine’s governor of Luhansk, said that it is currently impossible to evacuate people out of the city, but if the west could supply long-range weapons, Ukrainian forces would be able to “clean up Severodonetsk in two or three days”.
Ukrainian forces still control all of Severodonetsk's smaller twin city Lysychansk on the west bank of the Siverskyi Donets River, but Russian forces were destroying residential buildings there, Haidai said.
West of Severodonetsk in Slovyansk, most residents have fled but authorities say around 24,000 remain in the city, in the path of an expected assault by Russian forces regrouping to the north.
Meanwhile, UN’s chief Antonio Guterres warns the consequences for the world are worsening because of Russia’s invasion, and the “impact on food security, energy and finance” is “severe”.
