The “human cost” of the battle of Severodonetsk, strategic city of the eastern Ukraine, is “terrifying”, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Monday, June 13, as the Russians have tightened their control there in recent days without however managing to completely take this locality.

“The human cost of this battle for us is very high. He's just terrifying,” Volodymyr Zelensky said in his daily address to Ukrainians broadcast on Telegram. “The Battle of Donbass will surely go down in military history as one of the most violent battles in Europe”, supported the Ukrainian president.

“Up to 100 Ukrainian soldiers” are killed and “500 injured every day” in battles with the Russian military, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said Thursday. Volodymyr Zelensky said on June 1 that his army was losing “between 60 and 100 soldiers” per day.

Zelensky hopes for “more weapons” from the West

“We are dealing with absolute evil,” the Ukrainian president commented on Monday evening. Before adding: “We have no choice but to move forward and liberate our country”, including the Russian-occupied regions in the South and East which face “a civilizational blockade”, the Russians “blocking all communications” to the outside.

Volodymyr Zelensky also once again called on the West to provide “more weapons” to the army Ukraine, at a time when troops from Moscow largely control Severodonetsk and continue to shell Ukrainian artillery.

Earlier in the evening, the governor of the Lugansk region , Sergei Gaïdaï, had indicated that “70-80% of the city” was occupied by the Russians, specifying that “the three bridges (connecting Severodonetsk to its neighboring city of Lysychansk) were destroyed”.
