The Ukrainian military will have to leave  Severodonetsk .

Serhiy Gaidai, the head of the Lugansk OVA, stated this on the air of the DOM TV channel.

“We’ll have to take the guys away. There’s no need to breed ‘zrada’ – no one is abandoning our guys. No one will allow the encirclement,” Gaidai assured.

He added that being in broken positions “does not make sense”: “Because every day the number of deaths in the occupied territories can grow.”

Gaidai confirmed that the decision to withdraw troops had already been made.

At the forefront in Severodonetsk are now both the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard. 

“They have already received the order to retreat to new positions, to new fortified areas. And from there it is already normal and full-fledged to conduct military operations. And, accordingly, inflict damage on the enemy,” he said.

  1. A shattering blow for Ukraine, but a Pyrrhic victory for the orcs.
    The shattering truth is that putler wants the land and mineral resources. If allowed to, he will kill everyone, as per the tried and tested Russio-Mongol business plan: invade, inflict genocide. Occupy and initiate a programme of deportations and race replacement.
    Putler will continue way beyond Donbas and Kherson if permitted.
    In a just world, the Budapest signatories would say: “right, Severodonetsk finally hit the red line, we can’t go on any further without a far more robust response.”
    This has to mean a 500% increase in sanctions, a quadrupling of weapons support and providing air support, sea support and ultimately ground support.

    • Don’t count on sanctions. Just saw a report that Europe bought more gas from the scum suckers last month then the month before. My apologies, this morning I woke up to this news on Severodonetsk, so I’m kinda down. But this too shall pass.

    • I don’t consider it a shattering blow. It was inevitable. And, Ukraine made the cockroaches pay very, very dearly for the city. You are thus right; it’s a Pyrrhic victory, at best.

      • I’m afraid it is though. No army wants to concede land to an invader; it’s bloody hard work taking it back.
        Also it is inevitable that some poor people remain in that city. Imagine how horrible their life will now be under the jackboot of filthy orcs?

        • It’s not the most ideal thing to do, to give up territory, but it’s well worth it if you preserve your forces and cause the enemy savage losses. Ukraine can do this for a while longer, if necessary. This methodology would not be a viable one if the country was a small one. I’m sure that the Ukrainian general staff had it planned this way for quite some time. They are playing it very smart!

  2. “The infrastructure of the city is completely destroyed, 90% of the houses are damaged or destroyed.”

    Now, the city matches a typical ruskie city.

    As Scradge said, this is definitely a Pyrrhic victory! The Ukrainian forces inflicted such a devastating toll on the cockroaches that it is practically equal to defeat. Anymore such “victories” and the war is sooner over for mafia land than not.
