Day 109 of the Invasion of Ukraine: Zelensky asks “32,000 Russians have Died and for What?”
Here are the highlights of events related to the war in Ukraine over the past 24 hours: Ukraine continues to control the Azot chemical plant in Sievierodonetsk, where hundreds of civilians are fleeing fighting in the region. In another video address last, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that as "fierce street battles in Sievierodonetsk continue, the Ukrainian army is gradually liberating western territory in the Kherson region and has some success in Zaporizhzhia Luhansk Oblast Governor Serhiy Haidai said earlier that a large fire and tons of oil had leaked after Russian shelling of the Sievierodonetsk Azot plant. According to him, the fighting in the city does not stop and most of it is in Russian hands.
According to Ukraine, about 800 people have taken refuge in several bomb shelters under the plant. Rodion Miroshnik, a representative of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic, said some civilians had begun leaving the area. Earlier, he announced that about 300-400 Ukrainian fighters were blocked on the territory of the plant along with civilians. Meanwhile, RIA Novosti reported a huge cloud of smoke after an explosion in Avdiivka, a town in the neighboring Donetsk region that houses another chemical plant. The Ukrainian military says it has repulsed Russian attacks on three small towns northwest of Sloviansk in the Donetsk region, but fighting continues in a fourth settlement in the region, as well as east of the city.

But we must do everything in our power to make the occupiers regret it for what they have done. Ukrainian authorities would like to receive about 300 multiple rocket launchers (MLRS) from Western countries. "When it comes to rocket systems, we don't need three or four systems, we need about 300," he said.
