Advisor to Ukraine's Defense Minister: «We cannot give our land to the aggressor without resistance».

Yuriy Sak, an advisor to Ukraine's Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov, told DW that the Ukrainian army remains in control of an industrial area sheltering civilians in Sievierodonetsk.

"The situation in terms of the humanitarian crisis is very, very difficult. But Ukrainian armed forces are still in control of the industrial part of Sievierodonetsk," Sak said.

"Another one of Russia's blitzkrieg has failed because of the resistance and resilience of the Ukrainian armed forces," the advisor said.

"It's a situation of street-to-street fighting. The Ukrainian army is even counter-attacking in some places," Sak said, adding that this could be done more efficiently the faster Ukraine receives heavy weapons.
