Volodymyr Zelenskyj wants to reconquer Sieverodonetsk and other cities. The capital Kyiv is rocked again by explosions.
The Ukrainian capital Kiev has been rocked by several explosions. They happened early in the morning in the Shevchenkivsky district, Mayor Vitali Klitschko said on the short message service Telegram. Paramedics and rescue workers were dispatched to the scene.
The Ukrainian capital has rarely been the target of Russian attacks in recent weeks. The Russian military is currently concentrating primarily on the east of the country. Kyiv was last shelled in early June.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that he would recapture all the cities occupied by Russia. More than four months after the start of the war, his country is in an emotionally difficult phase, he said in his video address. Previously, Moscow had reported the capture of the strategically important city of Sievjerodonetsk.

The Ukrainian capital has rarely been the target of Russian attacks in recent weeks, and the Russian military is currently concentrating its attacks primarily on the east of the country. Kiev was last shelled in early June. While the Ukrainian side spoke of damaged railway infrastructure, Moscow reported the targeted destruction of tanks freshly delivered from abroad.
The most important events in brief:
Selenskyj expressly mentioned the city of Sievjerodonetsk in the east of the country, which should again be under Ukrainian control in the future. Both Moscow and Kyiv confirmed the capture by Russian troops. According to the Unian agency, an adviser to the President of Ukraine, Oleksiy Arestovych, said fighting continued in the region. The city's mayor, Oleksandr Strjuk, said the pro-government troops had moved into different positions. The information could not be independently verified.

According to information from Moscow, the Asot chemical plant in Sievjerodonetsk, which was recently converted into an air raid shelter, is now controlled by pro-Russian units of the Luhansk separatists. It was initially unclear how many people sought shelter there. The separatists said they "evacuated" 800 civilians. Where they were taken remained unclear.
According to Zelenskyy, Russia fired 45 rockets at the neighboring country within half a day on Saturday alone. There should also have been victims. According to the authorities, at least three people were killed and four others injured in an attack on the western Ukrainian city of Sarny. A car wash and a workshop were hit, the head of the military administration said, according to the Unian news agency. He blamed Russia for it.
The nuclear research facility "Neutron Source" in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv has again come under fire. Buildings and infrastructure such as ventilation ducts were damaged, the nuclear regulatory authority said. The part of the facility where the nuclear fuel is stored was not mentioned in the damage listing. No increased radiation was found. Ukraine blamed Russia for the attack.
