Ukrainians hold out as Russia storms eastern city on war’s 100th day

0 67


Two Reuters journalists were injured and a driver killed after their vehicle came under fire as they tried to reach Sievierodonetsk from an area controlled by Russian-backed separatists.

Gaidai said the Russians were shelling Ukrainian positions for hours and then advancing, only to be repulsed by defenders who had not been hurt, before repeating the pattern.

“This is how they are moving forward, step by step, because with artillery, aircraft, mortars, they are simply destroying everything,” he said.

“But as soon as we have enough Western long-range weapons, we will push their artillery away from our positions. And then, believe me, the Russian infantry, they will just run.”

Russian soldiers attempted to advance towards Lysychansk, across the Siverskyi Donetsk River from Sievierodonetsk but were forced to retreat, Ukraine’s military general staff said.

In neighbouring Donetsk province, also a target of Moscow’s eastern offensive, Russian troops were just 15km outside the city of Sloviansk, regional governor Pavlo Kyrylenko told Reuters.

Donetsk will not fall quickly, but needs more weapons to keep the attackers at bay, Kyrylenko said.

Washington said this week it expected Ukrainians would need three weeks of training to use the rockets, whose range of up to 80km could help negate Russia’s artillery fire-power advantage.

US President Joe Biden told reporters a negotiated settlement in Ukraine would be needed at some point, but in the meantime the United States would help Ukrainians defend themselves.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in an overnight address that Kyiv was expecting more “good news” on foreign arms, after the latest US$700 million US weapons package for Ukraine. “Victory will be ours,” he said later on Friday in a video address from outside his Kyiv office to mark 100 days of the war.
