The last: Fighting in the streets of Severodonetsk continues, with Ukrainian officials saying on Saturday their forces still controlled a third of the city and a Moscow-backed local official saying Russian troops surrounded hundreds of Ukrainian fighters at a chemical plant. Russia is expected to take control of all of Ukraine’s Luhansk region within weeks, a senior US defense official has said.
The fight: A slowly regenerating Russian army is making further gains in eastern Ukraine against valiant but under-equipped Ukrainian forces. The United States and its allies are rushing to deliver the huge quantities of weapons that the Ukrainians urgently need if they are to keep the Russians at bay.
Arms: Ukraine uses weapons such as Javelin anti-tank missiles and Switchblade “kamikaze” drones, supplied by the United States and other allies. Russia has used an array of weapons against Ukraine, some of which have drawn analysts’ attention and concern.
