Russia’s forces take over Kreminia in Ukraine’s east, says governor


The Governor of Kreminna says Ukrainian troops are pulling out of the city after the Russian assault “from all sides.” Russian forces took over the city of Kreminna in eastern Ukraine and Ukrainian troops withdrew from the city, the regional governor said. Kreminna, with a population of over 18,000 population before the war with Russia, seems to be the first city confirmed to have been captured by Russian forces since they launched a new attack in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. Kreminna is controlled by Orcs [Russians]. They entered the town,” said the governor of the Luhansk region, Serhiy Gaidai, on Tuesday. ‘’Our defenders had to step back. They have taken new positions and continue to fight Russia’s army.” He did not say when the Russian forces established control of Kreminna but said that they attacked “from all sides”. “The number of civilian deaths cannot be calculated. We have official numbers—about 200 deaths—but there are a lot of others,” he said, without clearly indicating how long the estimated number of fatalities covered.
