The Ukraine Region Endures Shelling as “Everything Is on Fire”

Nearly four months after the Kremlin started its invasion, Russian attacks on Tuesday cast a fire curtain over portions of eastern Ukraine where pockets of resistance are preventing Moscow from gaining complete military control of the territory.

Serhiy Haidai, the governor of Ukraine’s eastern Luhansk region, told The Associated Press that “today everything that can burn is on fire.”

The war in Russia has raised concerns about gas supplies from Russia, food supplies from Ukraine to the rest of the world, and the security of Western Europe.

Approximately 95% of the Luhansk region is currently under Russian military control. However, despite sending in more troops and having a significant edge in military resources, Moscow has been unable to fully encircle it for weeks.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, said in his nightly video message that “the Ukrainian army is strengthening defences in the Luhansk region with the help of tactical movements.” The most difficult scenario is currently there, in my opinion.

Ukrainian defenders clung to the Azot chemical facility on the city’s industrial outskirts near Sievierodonetsk, the focal point of the struggle. 500 civilians are taking refuge at the facility, and according to Haidai, Russian forces are reducing the region to “ruins.”

Haida described the facility to the AP in writing as “a total calamity.” Howitzers, several rocket launchers, large-calibre artillery, and missile strikes are all firing at our positions.

The chemical plant’s resistance brought to mind the besieged Azovstal steel mill in the harsh city of Mariupol, where Ukrainian troops were imprisoned for weeks.

Multiple airstrikes were also directed at nearby Lysychansk, the only city in the Luhansk region that is currently entirely under Ukrainian control.

More than ten residential buildings and a police station were destroyed by the airstrikes on Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk. According to the president’s office, the bombardment caused a school in the Donetsk region’s Avdiivka city to burn down. The Donbas is made up of the Luhansk and Donetsk areas.

Separately, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland met with Ukrainian Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova for almost an hour at a Ukrainian-Polish border crossing. They talked about how the United States can assist in locating, capturing, and prosecuting anyone responsible for war crimes and other atrocities in Ukraine.

In a statement, Garland said, “We and our partners will explore every avenue available to ensure that those who are accountable for these atrocities are brought accountable.”

Eli Rosenbaum, a 36-year Justice Department veteran who oversaw initiatives to track down and deport Nazi war criminals, was also appointed by Garland as a counsellor for war crimes responsibility. He will coordinate efforts to bring war criminals and other atrocity perpetrators in Ukraine to justice.


The second-largest city in Ukraine, Kharkiv, was subjected to intense Russian shelling on Tuesday. 15 citizens were murdered and 16 were injured in Kharkiv and other areas of the province, according to Governor Oleh Syniehubov.

Zelenskyy claimed that the attacks in the Kharkiv region were particularly “cruel and cynical” because the Russian forces received no discernible gain from them. “Any reason is lost on the Russian army. He remarked in his video address, “It simply destroys, simply kills, and in this way, it displays its command that it is not truly standing in position.

Russian President Vladimir Putin praised the Russian armed services as the successors to the nation’s “famous” military traditions while addressing graduates of Russian military colleges at an opulent Kremlin reception on Tuesday. He remarked, confident that Russia will succeed in overcoming all the difficulties, “The country is now going through another round of trials.”

Without a doubt, he continued, “we will only get stronger.”

Lithuania experienced a resurgence of geopolitical tensions following Russia’s invasion. The Baltic nation earlier this month forbade rail travel across its borders from Russia to the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad due to sanctions imposed by the European Union on Moscow.

With a population of about 430,000, Kaliningrad is separated from the rest of Russia and is sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland, both members of the EU.

The hardliner and influential secretary of the Kremlin’s Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, paid a visit to Kaliningrad on Tuesday and vowed to challenge the ban.

Without going into further detail, Patrushev stated that “the pertinent measures are being worked up in an interagency manner and will be enacted shortly.” The inhabitants of Lithuania will suffer significantly as a result of their effects, he continued.

Tuesday’s other developments include:

— In advance of Friday’s summit of EU leaders to determine whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, Zelenskyy claimed he spoke with the heads of nine states of the EU: Croatia, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Portugal, Slovakia, and Spain. He claimed that his schedule for Wednesday is equally hectic. According to him, “We are widening the circle of individuals who support Ukraine’s candidacy and increasing the likelihood that Friday’s decision will be favourable.”

— White House national security spokesman John Kirby called the Kremlin’s suggestion that two Americans detained by Russian forces in Ukraine could face the death penalty “appalling.” Kirby declined to indicate what action the United States would take if Russia failed to treat Alabama natives Andy Huynh and Alex Drueke as prisoners of war by the Geneva Conventions. When questioned by NBC whether the Americans would receive the same death penalty as two Britons and a Moroccan arrested while fighting for Ukraine, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov replied, “It depends on the inquiry.”

— The U.S. State Department has confirmed the death of a citizen of the United States in Ukraine. This person is thought to be just the second American to have died while participating in hostilities.

— Russia’s ability to project marine force in the western Black Sea has been “essentially neutralised,” according to an assessment by the British Ministry of Defense. The initial Russian operational plan for the invasion, which called for holding the Odesa region at risk from the sea, has been rendered ineffective, according to the source source

According to a complaint on Tuesday from the internet rights group Roskomsvoboda, Russian authorities have blocked the website of the British newspaper The Telegraph because of an article it published.

According to the report, Roskomnadzor, Russia’s media and internet watchdog banned access to a story alleging that Russian forces had constructed a mobile crematorium for use in their conflict with Ukraine, presumably to conceal their military deaths. For some Russians, the decision rendered the whole Telegraph website inaccessible.
