Sievierodonetsk celebrates its 88th anniversary under enemy fire, but flying Ukrainian flag
The city of Sievierodonetsk in Luhansk region, as in 2014, celebrates its birthday under enemy fire, but under the Ukrainian flag.
Serhiy Haidai, the head of the Luhansk Regional State Administration, wrote about this on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.
“History repeats itself, today, as in 2014, Sievierodonetsk celebrates its birthday under enemy fire.
And just as eight years ago, we will destroy and push the enemy back, but no longer just to Donetsk, but to the easternmost border of Ukraine,” Haidai said.
According to the top official, the shelling in Luhansk region is not subsiding as the hottest spot is now in Sievierodonetsk. The city flies the Ukrainian flag. The orcs still control the territory of the Mir Hotel, while failing to advance further, and suffering significant losses.
Fighting continues in the villages on the outskirts of Severodonetsk, “said the head of the OVA.
At the same time, he noted that the Russian invaders turned the prosperous city into a ruin: almost destroying the Azot plant and other flagships of Ukraine’s chemical industry. He added that the enemy must pay for all damage incurred.
“Over the three months of this war, the peaceful town of chemists became the world-famous city of Heroes. The civic feat of volunteers delivering food to the elderly, doctors saving lives under mortar fire, public utility workers risking their lives to restore electricity and water supplies – everyone who had the courage to fight in their place will forever be engraved in our hearts,” Haidai added, expressing confidence that Ukraine will win and write a new history of Sievierodonetsk – the city of the Unbreakable, where chemical enterprises will be restored.
As Ukrinform reported, on February 24, a total of 3,408 enterprises, including 479 industrial ones, suspended operations across Luhansk region due to a large-scale Russian invasion.
