According to the first reports from the front lines, Russian-led forces took control of the town of Volcheyarovka on June 26. The town is the strategically important area in the Severodonetsk-Lisichansk metropolitan region.
Russian military positions in the town allow to establish fire control over the Lisichansk-Seversk road which is the last one used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine for military supply to their positions.
The group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has lost the possibility of withdrawing the remaining forces from Lisichansk. Russian-allied forces have established military positions on the heights in the town and now the Seversk-Lisichansk highway is under full fire control of the artillery of the Russian Federation.
According to the reports from the spot, Russian control was established after fierce clashes. Judging by the footage from the spot, the AFU suffered heavy losses in the area.
