Global News published this video item, entitled “Ukraine refuses surrender of Sievierodonetsk to Russia as allies rush to send more aid” – below is their description.

Ukraine’s Western allies are pledging more support, with Russia on the verge of seizing Sievierodonetsk in the fight for the eastern Donbas region.

Russia released images on Wednesday of cruise missiles being fired at Ukraine after the country refused to surrender the city.

About 80 per cent of that city has been seized by Russian forces — but the industrial zone, including the chemical plant where civilians and soldiers are sheltering, remains under Ukrainian control.

Crystal Goomansingh reports on the city’s status, the help Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is pleading for, and the weapons Canada is planning to send.

The Donbas or Donbass is a historical, cultural, and economic region in south-eastern Ukraine, and bordering Russia.

In March 2014, following the Euromaidan and 2014 Ukrainian revolution, the Donetsk and Luhansk “People’s Republics” took control of areas within the region with support from Russia. Russia recognised their independence in February 2022. No other country recognises the independence of the areas.

Before the war, the city of Donetsk (then the fifth largest city in Ukraine) had been considered the unofficial capital of the Donbas. Large cities (over 100,000 inhabitants) also included Luhansk, Mariupol, Makiivka, Horlivka, Kramatorsk, Sloviansk, Alchevsk, Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk. Now the city of Kramatorsk is the interim administrative centre of the Donetsk Oblast, whereas the interim centre of Luhansk Oblast is Sievierodonetsk.
