Russian forces have fully taken over the city of Severodonetsk in eastern Ukraine after Ukrainian troops withdrew. As much as 90% of the city is destroyed after months of fighting. Severodonetsk is seen as Russia’s biggest battlefield victory since the fall of Mariupol in May. Over the weekend, Russian forces fired missiles across Ukraine, including one strike in Kyiv that hit a nine-story apartment building, killing at least one person. In other developments, The New York Times has confirmed CIA personnel and NATO commandos are secretly operating inside Ukraine, sharing U.S. battleground intelligence to help in the fight against Russia. Meanwhile, Russia has announced it will soon send nuclear-capable missiles to Belarus.
