"100 Days Of Ukraine war"

"100 Days Of Ukraine war" Russia Now Holds 20% Of Ukraine

On Friday, Russia's invasion of Ukraine marked 100 days since fighting raged across the country in the eastern part, where Moscow's forces are tightening their grip on the Donbas.

The sad milestone came as Ukraine announced Moscow was now in control of the fifth territory of Ukrainian, including Crimea and parts of the Donbas seized in 2014.

After revolt from around the capital, Vladimir Putin, President Russian troops have set their sights on capturing eastern Ukraine, prompting warnings that the war could continue.

Following White House talks with US President, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg warned that Ukraine's allies needed to support a grueling "war of attrition."

Stoltenberg said while reiterating that NATO does not want confrontation with Russia.

"We have to be ready for the long haul,"

Despite a slower advance than expected, Moscow's forces are making progress. Volodymyr Zelensky, the President, told Luxembourg lawmakers that 20 percent of Ukrainian territory was now under Russian control.

Since Russia's invasion on February 24, thousands of people have been killed, and millions have been forced to flee. On the battleground, up to 100 Ukrainian soldiers are dying every day, according to Zelensky.

Street battles are furious in the industrial hub of Severodonetsk in Lugansk, part of the Donbas.

Moscow already controls about 80 percent of the strategic city. Still, its defenders are putting up stiff resistance, with Lugansk regional governor Sergiy Gaiday vowing Ukrainian forces will fight "until the end."

Severodonetsk's Azot factory, one of Europe's most extensive chemical plants, was targeted by Russian soldiers who fired on one of its administrative structures and a warehouse where methanol was stored.

'Shooting is everywhere.'

Kyiv troops were still holding an industrial zone, Gaiday said, reminiscent of Mariupol, where a large steelworks was the southeastern port city's last hold until Ukrainian troops finally surrendered in late May.

In Sloviansk, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Severodonetsk, residents said there were constant bombardments by Russian troops.

"It's challenging here," said paramedic Ekaterina Perednenko, 24, who only returned to the city five days ago but realized she would have to leave again.

She said.

"Shooting is everywhere, it's very scary. there is No water, electricity or gas,"

Ukrainian military officials said the city of Mykolaiv, Russian shelling killed at least one person and injured several others late Thursday.

The commander in chief of armed forces, Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, pleaded for modern armaments, saying that "the enemy has a decisive advantage in artillery."
