Ukraine Calls for more weapons as fighting in Donbas intensifies
Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, ha said Russian offensive in the Donbas is “the largest one on European soil since WWII”.
Kuleba stated this via a tweet this Tuesday also saying that it is “too early” to conclude that Kyiv already has all the weapons it needs to defend itself against the Russian offensive.
He urged allies to “speed up deliveries of weapons and ammunition, especially multiple rocket launch systems, MLRS, long-range artillery, and armoured personnel carriers.
Meanwhile, the governor of Luhansk has delivered a grim warning that it is too late for thousands of civilians to be evacuated from the besieged city of Sievierodonetsk, as it faced a sustained Russian effort to take the city and the parts of the province still held by Ukraine.
Reports say Sievierodonetsk and the towns and villages to its west have been under intense bombardment in recent days and about Fifteen thousand residents are still believed to be in the city hiding in shelters.
Russian forces have also been attempting to cut Ukrainian supply lines to Sievierodonestsk by attempting to control key roads to the west.
