Russia now controls 80% of Luhansk, claims governor of separatist region

One of Russia's stated goals is to expand the territory in the Donbas under the control of Moscow-backed separatists.

The governor of Luhansk has said that Russian forces now control 80% of the area, which is one of two regions that make up the Donbas in eastern Ukraine.

One of Russia's stated goals is to expand the territory in the Donbas under the control of Moscow-backed separatists.

Before Russia invaded on February 24, the Kyiv government controlled 60% of the Luhansk region.

Governor Serhiy Haidai said the Russians, who renewed their offensive this week in eastern and southern Ukraine, have strengthened their attacks in the Luhansk region.

After seizing Kreminna, Haidai said the Russians now are threatening the cities of Rubizhne and Popasna and he has urged all residents to evacuate immediately.
