Russian troops claim victory in Severodonetsk, the main city in eastern Ukraine – Channel 4 News

Russian-backed forces say they have taken control of a strategic city in eastern Ukraine amid intense fighting around key areas of Donbas.

Officials in Severodonetsk said 90 percent of the buildings there have been damaged by constant Russian bombardment and claimed the city was “systematically destroyed”.

Ukraine is fiercely resisting, but says it urgently needs more advanced weapons from the West to stop Russia’s advance.
