According to CNN, Ukrainian forces withdrawing from Sievjerodonetsk are trying to reorient themselves.

"The Ukrainian armed forces are conducting a professional, tactical retreat to secure their positions where they can better defend themselves," a senior US official said in a background briefing with the US broadcaster.



Accordingly, the Russian army in the Donbass is still gaining "inch by inch in territory".

At the same time, he described the Russian advance on Sieverodonetsk as a "very small, very gradual gain".

However, he did not want to downplay the "significant" percentage of territory that Russia controls in Ukraine, nor the loss of Ukrainian lives.
