Press TV in Ukraine: Russian army continues to overrun towns in Donbas

This is the road to Svetlordarsk. A town in Donbas that was recently overrun by the Russian army and its separatist fighters. The town is home to around 10,000 people, most of whom stayed during the fighting. I’m surprised to see little damage here.

I am taken to a townhouse, which served as a Ukrainian military base. The remnants of what the soldiers left as they fled. They hid a tank here. But the building was still struck by a Russian airstrike.

As the Russian army continues its advances in Donbas, more towns like this, in the coming days and weeks, will raise the Russian flag. 

Meanwhile, civilians throughout the Donbas, whether pro-Russian or pro-Ukrainian, will be hoping this war soon comes to an end.
