Russia on Wednesday (June 15) accused Kyiv forces of blocking the evacuation through a “humanitarian corridor” of civilians from a factory in Sievierodonetsk, a city in eastern Ukraine that was stormed by Israel. Russian army. “The Russian side has provided a humanitarian corridor to allow the evacuation of civilians from the Azot chemical plant in Severodonetsk. Despite all these measures, (…) the Kyiv authorities cynically derailed the humanitarian operation,” the Russian Defense Ministry charged in a statement.

On Tuesday, Russia said it would set up a “humanitarian corridor” on Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (French time) to allow civilians who took refuge in the Azot factory to leave Severodonetsk in the direction of territories controlled by the forces from Moscow to the north. The Russian Defense Ministry, however, accused Ukrainian forces of “repeatedly violating the ceasefire” and “using the humanitarian pause to redeploy to more advantageous (combat) positions”.

It was not possible to independently verify these claims. A strategic city in eastern Ukraine, Sievierodonetsk has for several weeks been the scene of violent clashes between the Ukrainian army and forces from Moscow as well as their pro-Russian separatist allies. According to the Ukrainian authorities, several hundred people are currently taking refuge in the large Azot chemical plant, which they claim is constantly bombarded.

A similar situation with that of Azovstal

This situation is reminiscent, on a smaller scale, of that which existed in the large Azovstal metallurgical complex in Mariupol, a large port city in the south-east, which fell into Russian hands in May after several weeks of siege.

Hundreds of civilians had taken refuge in underground galleries in Azovstal, before finding themselves trapped there alongside Ukrainian fighters, in extremely difficult conditions as the bombs rained down nonstop.

Russia had repeatedly announced the establishment of humanitarian corridors to evacuate civilians, but several agreements had fallen through, with Moscow and kyiv accusing each other of having broken them.

Zelensky says his “gratitude for new US military aid

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky also on Wednesday showed his “gratitude” to Americans for the new tranche of military aid that his US counterpart Joe Biden had announced to him earlier in the week. evening on the phone.

“The United States has announced a new reinforcement of our defense, a new tranche of aid of one billion dollars,” confirmed Volodymyr Zelensky in his evening video message. “I want to express my gratitude for this support, it is particularly important for our defense in Donbass”, the region of eastern Ukraine epicenter of the current Russian attacks.

US aid includes additional artillery and shells, as well as anti-ship missiles, totaling $1 billion. “I am also grateful to the United States for mobilizing the assistance of all partners,” added the President of Ukraine. He said he also discussed with his American counterpart “the tactical situation on the ground and how to accelerate our victory”. Volodymyr Zelensky said he also spoke with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who took to Twitter to support Ukraine “until the final victory”.
