Russia destroys bridge over Ukraine river, cuts emergency exit

Local officials said Russian forces blew up a bridge connecting the Ukrainian city of Severodonetsk with another city across the river, cutting off the way to evacuate civilians.

Russian forces have captured most of the city, but Ukrainian troops still control an Azot industrial park and chemical plant, where hundreds of civilians are sheltering.

But the Russians destroyed a bridge over the river Siverskyi Donets connecting Severodonetsk with its twin city of Lysychansk, Luhansk governor Serhiy Gaidai said.

“If after new shelling the bridge collapses, the city will really be divided. There will be no leaving Sievierodonetsk in a vehicle,” Gaidai said, noting the lack of a truce and the absence of agreed evacuation corridors.

A new city sign painted in the colors of the Russian flag was unveiled on the outskirts of Mariupol, replacing a monument in the blue and gold of Ukraine.

The Russian flag was also flown on a highway into the port city, which is now completely under the control of Moscow-backed forces.

According to the authorities installed by the Kremlin, the seaport is now ready to operate as usual and is used to transport goods to and from Russia.
