President Volodymyr Zelensky vowed in a video address that Ukraine would win back its lost cities, including Svyarodonetsk.

“Russia is using tactics … it used in Mariupol: wipe the city off the face of the earth,” he said. “Given the conditions, it is no longer possible to defend in ruins and open plains. That’s why Ukrainian forces are moving to higher positions to continue defense operations.”
Russia’s Defense Ministry said that “as a result of successful offensive operations” the Russian army had gained full control of Svyarodonetsk and the nearby city of Borivske.

Since Russian forces were defeated in an attack on the capital Kyiv in March, it shifted its focus to the Donbass, an eastern region made up of Luhansk and Donetsk provinces. Svyarodonetsk and Lisichansk were the last major Ukrainian strongholds in Lugansk.
