"This is what the symbol of the temporary regional center looks like now. In June, the residents of Luhansk region were stunned by the news that the Ice Palace burned down as a result of a ruscist attack. A fifty-year history was burned," Serhiy Haidai, Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, posted on Telegram, publishing a video of the Ice Palace in Sievierodonetsk.
According to him, the invaders deliberately pummeled the Ice Palace with shells and also destroyed many "iconic buildings that were the legends of Sievierodonetsk."
"The burned-out city is barely alive, the orcs are mocking the local population by not providing normal living conditions. [People live] without electricity, gas, water supply, mobile communication, healthcare, education... but with heating points, simulated repairs, flooded apartment blocks... and sweet propaganda. ‘Russian world’ in all its glory," the governor emphasized.
As reported, Russian troops captured Sievierodonetsk in the summer of 2022.
