Following over a month of urban fighting, Russian forces captured the city of Severodonetsk. Throughout the month of June, Ukrainian forces established something of a stronghold in the western industrial districts. Due to the intensity and frequency of persistent Russian artillery and aerial sorties, civilian infrastructure, and particuarly residential buildings, suffered substantial damage.
