Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that fighting for the city of Severodonetsk may decide the outcome of the war in the east of the country.

“In many respects, the fate of the Donbas is being decided there,” he said, as combat raged in the industrial belt with Russian and separatist forces.

He said his troops were inflicting major losses on enemy forces.
