AP | Four people were killed and nine others were injured in what became known as the Russian offensive in the Donetsk region on Monday.
Russia’s top diplomat has warned Ukraine that the threat of a third world war is imminent and that the threat of a nuclear conflict should not be “underestimated” as his country has attacked rail and fuel facilities far from the front lines of Russia’s new offensive, including Moscow in eastern Ukraine.
Britain’s Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that Russian forces had captured the Ukrainian city of Kremlin in the Luhansk region after days of street fighting.
The British military said in a tweet on Tuesday that “the city of Kremlin is reported to have collapsed and heavy fighting has erupted south of Asia as Russian forces try to advance into the cities of Sloviansk and Gramadorsk from the north and east.”
The report did not say how he came to know about the crash, which occurred about 575 kilometers (355 miles) southeast of the Ukrainian capital, Kiev. The Ukrainian government did not respond immediately.
Ukrainian civil servants say Russian attacks have taken place in Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city. Moscow is trying to seize control of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, which make up Donbass, Ukraine’s industrial hub in the east of the country, and establish a land connection with Crimea.
In the village of Velika Oleksandrivka in the Russian-controlled Gerson region, Ukrainian forces destroyed an ammunition depot and “destroyed” more than 70 soldiers, civil servants added.
Luhansk regional governor Sergei Haidoi told the Telegram news agency that Russian forces had attacked civilians 17 times in the past 24 hours, and that the cities of Bobasna, Lyczynsk and Kirsk had been hit hardest by the attack.
Four people were killed and nine others were injured in what became known as the Russian offensive in the Donetsk region on Monday, its governor, Pavlo Girillenko, told the Telegram. The dead included a 9-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy.
The United States has been quick to bring more weapons to Ukraine and says Western aid is turning the tide of the war, which began two months ago.
“Russia is failing. Ukraine is winning,” US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said Monday after he and US Secretary of Defense Kiev went to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky.
The United States wants Ukraine to be a sovereign and democratic country, but Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has said that Russia “wants to see Russia weakened beyond repair.”
