On June 1, Ukrainian officials said that Russia had occupied most of the city of Severodonetsk in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine, but that Ukrainian forces still controlled about 20% of the city.

On June 2, Kadyrov announced that “fighters from Chechnya, along with other Russian military units, have completely liberated Severodonetsk,” according to Newsweek.

“Our warriors are moving to the next stage, which is to randomly test a number of objects in the city,” he added.

Kadyrov also stated: “The soldiers understand their job very well and they act extremely professionally.”

He noted: “The stronghold of the Ukrainian army – the main General Department building of the SBU and the surrounding area has been completely cleared.”

The SBU is the main law enforcement, security and intelligence agency of the Ukrainian government. The footage accompanying Mr. Kadyrov’s statement appeared to show pro-Russian forces occupying the local SBU building.

He said: “The Ukrainians left the office, leaving behind a number of homemade explosive devices. However, Russian commandos quickly handled it successfully.”

Kadyrov also stated: “Locals greeted the Russian soldiers with relief and joy.

None of the Chechen leader’s statements can be independently verified.

On June 1, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Ukraine is losing 60 to 100 soldiers a day in the Donbass region.

The Russian military began a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24. June 3 marks the 100th day of the campaign.
