UK says Severodonetsk 'tactical priority' for Russia

The United Kingdom Ministry of Defence said the city of Severodonetsk in the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic of Ukraine's Donbas remains Russia's "immediate" tactical priority.

In its latest intelligence update on the situation on the ground, the British ministry alleged that Moscow's only operational company of BMP-T Terminator tank support vehicles has likely been deployed to the city.

"Their presence suggests that the Central Grouping of Forces (CGF) is involved in this attack, which is the only formation fielding this vehicle," the ministry stated. "The Severodonetsk area remains one of Russia's immediate tactical priorities."
