U.S. Gen. Milley says Russian control of eastern Ukraine likely but not inevitable
June 15 (UPI) — After weeks of fighting, Russia’s military is in control of at least 80% of Severodonetsk, but U.S. military officials warned Wednesday that full Russian control of eastern Ukraine isn’t a “done deal.”
The regional governor of Luhansk, one of two provinces in eastern Ukraine that make up the Donbas, provided an update Wednesday on the city that’s believed to be the largest that’s still under some Ukrainian control.
Russia’s bombing of three main bridges that lead into Severodonetsk has cut off humanitarian supplies and evacuation routes, while pro-Russia separatist fighters warned Ukrainian forces to “surrender or die” there.
