Enemy controls most of Sievierodonetsk, but city not encircled - Haidai

Most of Sievierodonetsk is controlled by the enemy, but the city is not encircled.

Serhii Haidai, head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, said this on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

"Most of Sievierodonetsk is controlled by the Russians. The city is not surrounded, and there are no prerequisites for this. Critical infrastructure in the city is almost 100% destroyed, the housing stock is 90% damaged, and 60% of buildings are seriously damaged, that is they cannot be restored,” Haidai said.

Due to the shelling, it is impossible to bring humanitarian goods to Sievierodonetsk, as well as to evacuate people.

As was reported earlier, Russian invaders on Tuesday launched an air strike on Sievierodonetsk and hit a tank with nitric acid at the chemical plant.
