On June 24, the head of the Luhansk regional military administration which is under Kiev’s control claimed that Ukrainian forces will have to withdraw from Severodonetsk. The Ukrainian military has been ordered to withdraw from the city.
The territory of the Azot plant remains under the control of Ukrainian armed formations. Severodonetsk itself and the airport in its vicinity are under control of the allied forces of the Russian Federation and the LPR. At the moment, it is unclear whether the Ukrainian official was referring to residential areas of Severodonetsk, which are already under full control of Russian-led forces, or the industrial zone of the city, where Ukrainian militants are hiding.
“Unfortunately, we will have to withdraw our military [from Severodonetsk]. It makes no sense to stay in positions broken after many months [of hostilities], because the number of dead in unfortified territories may grow every day,” Hayday said in a televised address. “Our defenders, who are there, have already received a command to withdraw to new positions, and to fully conduct hostilities from there.”
Hayday went on to say Russia was now targeting the city of Lysychansk from Zolote and Toshkivka, around 30 kilometers (18.6 miles) to the south.
“They really succeed in some settlements,” he said. “Lysychansk is logistically stretched, the landscape is complex. Therefore, it is difficult to take it immediately.”
According to the Ukrainian official, Russian attempts to infiltrate the city with sabotage and reconnaissance groups had been repelled. He added that evacuations and deliveries of military and humanitarian aid to the city were ongoing. However, the official representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR, Ivan Filipenko, had previously claimed that both cities are an operational encirclement. Russian-led forces control the airspace over Lisichansk and Severodonetsk. The military of the LPR PM took control of the only road from Seversk to Lisichansk. Thousands of Ukrainian militants in Lisichansk were cut off from supplies.
Earlier in the day, it was reported that the militants of the nationalist formation “Aidar”, who are hiding in the Azot plant in Severodonetsk, declared their readiness to surrender on condition of a ceasefire.
First Deputy Minister of Information of the DPR Daniil Bezsonov claimed that 800 Ukrainian fighters surrendered in the last two days. About 1 thousand AFU servicemen were killed in the area of Lisichansk in the last two days. The approximate number of wounded should be about 2.5—3.5 thousand soldiers.
The LPR control of Severodonetsk will be officially announced soon. The interim administration is already being formed in the city. A local resident was already appointed the head of Severodonetsk.
Mr Bezsonov added that according to official data, there are 1,8 thousand AFU servicemen, 120 nationalists, 80 foreign mercenaries in the Gorskoe-Zolotoe region who found themselves in a trap.
While hostilities continue, about 10 000 civilians remain in the city, some of them are still in hostage in the industrial zone of Severodonetsk. In total more than 500 people are based in shelters of the Azot plant.
On June 24, three civilians managed to leave the territory of the Azot plant, the LPR commandant’s office of Severodonetsk reported. The civilians include two men and a woman.
“Three civilians managed to get out through the second checkpoint, although they lived in a bomb shelter at the first checkpoint. Now they have already been evacuated from the city,” the commandant’s office said.
Earlier it was reported that Ukrainian militants are based near the first checkpoint of the Azot plant and do not allow civilians to leave the plant. They also have less control over the second checkpoint.

What a great victory, after months they finally captured this city, at this rate they should ‘liberate’ donbass by the end of the year. For those thinking this is sustainable just look at operation barbarossa, germans thought they were winning untill december yet they lost the war, same will happen to russia eventually, history is evidence of this.
Donbas will fall within weeks not the end of the year. Ukraine has no way of winning this war.
Kiev’s forces out up fierce resistance. As such, RF altered tactics some: entrench, mountain of artillery, move up, rinse and repeat. It’s slower but has seen much fewer RF casualties. So unless there is a MAJOR collapse by Kiev’s forces, I do not expect a change in strategy. It’ll be some months before DPR/all of Donbas is in RF hands…but it will be.
Unlikely. Once Lisichansk is fully encircled (or cut off from supply routes) it will likely only be able to hold out for a number of weeks, much like the Azovstal steel plant. Avdiivka might be well fortified, but is it as well-fortified from the rear?
If so, then it too will end up encircled and cut off from all supplies!
Should be good if they hit supply lines and east moving troops an supplies HARD. and keep pummeling oil and fuel like they have.
Take the war to Kiev.
It will be all over by the first frost. People of the EU won’t put up with much hardship. Biden will be on his way out of town by then as well.
A Disciple of American “Shock & Awe ” it seems — Russia doesn’t want to slaughter civilians especially of the same race . In WW2 Germany got bogged down in winter especially their heavy Tiger tanks and their very long supply lines , they didn’t even have the correct winter clothing -have you never watched the live videos of the Nazi invasion ? Russia has short distance supply lines compared to America/Germany.
The difference is that Ukraine is not the Soviet Union. Besides, Ukraine has no strategic depth.
Shallow thinking, shallow morals, shallow army. Ukraine has it all.
but zee germans were invaders the russians are just clearing the basement of squatters asshole,history will prove me right .
I’m afraid that they are specially bred to apply HIMARS
The successes of the LPR and DPR forces are obvious. These guys have been on the battlefield for more than 8 years. Bakhmut and Kramatorsk are next.
Zelonsky the digital nazi jew parazite should be executed soon with all the parazites that went to kiov !!!!
What?! No glorious evacuation?!🤣
There will soon be one, straight to LPR & Russian prisons
800 of them got “extracted” to jail in Rostov. “Evacuation” is working!
Motorola would be proud
Zivi also smiles, when looking down.
Givi. It was the call sign of Mihail Tolstyh. He was ethnic gruzin (georgian) partly and took this nick, because it’s very popular name in Caucasus.
A name that should not be used lightly, a victim of british enterprise, a brave man, like levi, killed by treason a shameful way of war but typically british, without honour.
Not to forget Zakharchenko. No one will ever fill his boots.
If the c13228 would actually been cut, there would be no need to use words as an “operational encriclement”. Why claim an encirclement that clearly hasn’t been achieved? You only lose credibility.
I agree. Even though my stance is pro Russian I don’t like when pre mature declarations of encirclement are made
Operational encirclement IS encirclement. If 10% can get through and 90% will be destroyed, what do you call that?
Full encirclement and operational one are two different terms. None tries to trick us. Operational encirclement is blocking enemy from 3 sides and taking the 4th under fire or taking all main roads and preventing supplying of blocked group. Enemy can’t be supplied well and can retreat along country roads in small groups, if he will be lucky enough.
Well, they blew up all the bridges to trap their soldiers there, so basically, they’ll have to swim under fire to ” Withdraw”. It sounds like the Ukrainians don’t want to admit they lost the city and don’t want to admit they can’t actually even withdraw their forces now.
Yes, the commanders (cowards from Kiev who have no respect for the lives of their own soldiers) wanted them to fight to death, they can’t run now. It’s surrender or die.
If they swim, Russia will let them go in peace I’m sure. Russia’s goal is to secure Donbass, not to kill Ukie soldiers.
No, their stated goal is to demilitarize Ukraine, which means destroying its army because if any army is left, the US/UK/EU/CA will just be back to their old tricks. And it’ll have to be destroyed all over again.
The West called the tune. Russia’s just dancing to it.
They can leave, but not take weapons…
It’s too late to withdraw. Some units can escape of course, mostly in civilian clothes, but most of them are being destroyed by Russian artillery strikes.
If they withdraw, Russia will undoubtedly let them go in peace.
That boat sailed
Train left (our variant of “that boat sailed”).
They can “withdraw” now or be “evacuated” later. The result is the same.

Keep bleeding them russian bastads!!!
Begone sodomised mongrelised degenerated transformer,no worse bastards then askenazi/cia poofs
Your rectum keep bleeding after being sodomized by Hunter Biden and Zelensky on crack.
What IS your problem? Having a hard time coping with being a has been?
I guess he’s having trouble coping with the thought that if NATO goes just a tad too far, Russia can turn all of Europe and America into a raging nuclear inferno and maybe just not care about the consequences any more and he just does the ostrich move to compensate.
That’s what you get when you put all your chips on a jackass of a president that says ‘our neo-nazi battalions are what they are’ then shrugs his shoulders, (meaning committing war crimes left and right and now committing them with western heavy metal).
How long before this play goes into its final act. Hmmm?

Orcs army is pathetic. What a bunch of freaking losers. Ukraine will train up 10 million fighters, and will not only take back all the territories including Crimea, but will take Belgorod, Kursk, Voronezh, Smolensk, Saint Petersburg and everything all the way to Moscow. This is needed to make sure that this can never happen again. Russia is Ukraine.
This is a joke, right?
Obviously. Even Ukies aren’t that far gone. (Or are they?)
Delusional,considering you wannabe libby orcs can’t fight for shit,let alone retake anything ever again! 10 million would love to get their hands onto you,and tear you apart in little bits and pieces,evil fool!
nothing can stop the volkssturm
Yes UkrOrk army is pathetic, and yes, pity your whore bitch mother didn’t abort you after your grandpa raped her bum.
Yeah sure. Those 10 million highly trained and valuable “soldiers” will take Russia.
Has he already wasted the 700,000 he spoke of recruiting last week? lol Ukraine…can’t fix stupid.
unfortunately your crack whore mama did not abort you…..how many Leroys did she rent you to before surgeon had to repair your rectum?
Meanwhile, Canadian special ed university students declare Zelensky to be Harry Potter. Slava Cocaina!
ALL universities in Canada are ‘special’ in that way. They even hire former neo-nazis from the ukrop rat lines to teach history and other ‘special things’.
Woe unto neo-libby wannabe orcs and the nazo evil empire of lies whom are getting beat completely!
Yeah they’ve been “ordered to retreat” after their frontline collapsed 👍
How exactly are the Ukrainians going to withdraw if they are encircled? Evacuate like in Mariupol!
Zelensky will wave the magic wand that Pelosi gave him and hope its not the one that puts him back in high heels and a little tiara on his head.
probably the half part , the rest were killed , wounded,prisonners…
A day late and a dollar short. They’re being annihilated as they retreat, sort of like a ’91 Iraqi Highway of Death.
or the ukrainian army in 2014….2015….2018… EXPERTS lmao
Takes one to know one. Besides, are you suggesting that Kiev has any other plans than to feed the Russian bear with cannon fodder hoping the bear will eventually get indigestion, call it quits and just go home to bed?
kill the western and ukrainian nazis.
