Russia is apparently on the verge of taking over Luhansk. According to President Zelenskyy, the fate of the Donbass will be decided in Sieverodonetsk.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described the battle for Sievjerodonetsk as a landmark for the struggle in the east of the country. "Syeverodonetsk remains the epicenter of the clashes in Donbass," he said in a video message. The Ukrainian military is inflicting noticeable losses on the enemy there. "This is a very brutal and difficult battle. Perhaps one of the most difficult of this war (...) In many ways the fate of our Donbass will be decided there."
After heavy fighting, the Russian army controls most of Sieverodonetsk. This was announced by the governor of the Luhansk region, Serhiy Hajday, in his Telegram channel. "As for the industrial zone (of Sieverodonetsk), our defenders are holding there. But the fighting is not only going on in the industrial zone - the fighting is taking place in the city."

However, the situation in the industrial zone is not like in the city of Mariupol, where the fighting took place directly in the Azov steel plant. "As of today, there is no danger of encirclement," said Hajdaj. More than 90 percent of the Luhansk region is occupied by Russia.

Chernyshev is one of four special envoys of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who are currently campaigning in the EU member states for Ukraine's accession prospects. He was in Berlin yesterday and the day before for talks. He met, among others, Chancellor Wolfgang Schmidt (SPD), Development Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) and Agriculture Minister Cem Özdemir (Greens). It usually takes many years from candidate status to EU membership.

Polish President Duda criticizes the fact that Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) and French President Emmanuel Macron are continuing to hold talks with Putin. "These talks are useless," said Duda in a picture interview. The situation is similar to that of Adolf Hitler in World War II. "And did anyone talk to Adolf Hitler that way during World War II?"
