Ukraine Seeks More Heavy Arms as Russia Moves to Solidify Rule in Eastern Ukraine

HeadlineJun 14, 2022

In eastern Ukraine, Russian forces have destroyed the last bridge connecting Severodonetsk to other areas under Ukrainian control as heavy fighting continues in the city. Ukraine is calling on Western nations to provide far more in heavy arms. On Monday, Ukraine requested 300 rocket launchers, 500 tanks and 1,000 howitzers. This comes as Russia has begun issuing passports in some areas it is occupying in eastern Ukraine as Russia attempts to solidify its rule in the region. Meanwhile, Russia is accusing Ukraine of firing NATO-supplied artillery on a market in a Russia-controlled area of Donetsk, killing three people, including a child.
