Sievierodonetsk remains unseized, fierce battles raging on streets – Haidai

Kadyrov’s men announced they had captured the city of Sievierodonetsk, but the city is remaining unseized, and fierce battles are raging on its streets.

The relevant statement was made by Luhansk Regional Military Administration Head Serhii Haidai in his video address on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Now Luhansk Region is an outpost of Ukraine, and lots of Russian invasion forces are concentrated here. Today, fierce battles are raging in Sievierodonetsk. By the way, Kadyrov’s men reported they had captured the city. It is a lie, as battles are raging in the city. Heavy battles, directly in the city of Sievierodonetsk,” Haidai told.

In his words, Russian invaders showed the videos depicting some drunkards welcoming Russian troops, but these drunkards cannot represent Sievierodonetsk.

“Sievierodonetsk residents are intelligent, wise Ukrainians, who will never accept Russia’s rule,” Haidai noted.

Haidai also advised that the enemy count their losses after yesterday’s battles in Sievierodonetsk, as many Russian soldiers were killed.

In addition, Haidai called on Luhansk Region’s residents to trust in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Ukraine’s victory.

A reminder that Russian troops are attempting to gain full control over Luhansk Region and Donetsk Region, but their efforts have been unsuccessful so far.
