Quote from Vlasenko: "There’s aircraft, Tochka-U [ballistic missiles], a whole set of artillery operating here. The offensive comes from all directions. They’re storming Lysychansk, storming the Bakhmut-Lysychansk road, and Sievierodonetsk as well, and the surrounding villages - Synetskyi, Pavlohrad, Syrotyne, Borivske.

Everywhere there is shelling and fighting.

There is no talk of retreating from Lysychansk at the moment."

Details: Vlasenko also gave assurances that Ukrainian troops are still in Sievierodonetsk, and it will take some time to leave the city - it's not a matter of hours or days.
