Satellite imagery shows destroyed bridges near Sievierodonetsk

STORY: Russian forces cut off the last routes for evacuating citizens from Sievierodonetsk, a Ukrainian official said on Monday (June 13), as the Kremlin pushed for victory in the Donbas region.

The last bridge to the city was destroyed, trapping any remaining civilians and making it impossible to deliver humanitarian supplies, said regional governor Sergei Gaidai, adding that some 70% of the city was under Russian control.

Ukraine has issued increasingly urgent calls for more Western heavy weapons to help defend Sievierodonetsk, which Kyiv says could hold the key to the battle for the eastern Donbas region and the course of the war, now in its fourth month.
