“Russia said on Sunday it seized a village near [the Luhansk People’s Republic’s] industrial city of Sievierodonetsk, a prime target in Moscow’s campaign to control [seceded republics formerly part of Ukraine’s] east, as the head of NATO predicted the war could last for years. Russia’s defence ministry said it had won Metyolkine, a settlement of fewer than 800 people before the war began. Russian state news agency TASS reported that many Ukrainian fighters had surrendered there.” (06/19/22)
