Invading Russian forces have attacked the village of Vrubivka with a flamethrower system, Luhansk Governor Serhiy Hayday said in a Telegram messenger post on June 11.

According to Hayday, many houses in the village have burned down. Information about casualties is being verified.

He said that the Russian invaders continued to storm the town of Severodonetsk. They also entered the village of Orikhove. In addition, no surviving objects remained in the towns of Rubizhne and Popasna as a result of enemy attacks.

"Russia is doing the same with Lysychansk and Severodonetsk – destroying factories," he said.

The governor added that the situation in Severodonetsk is difficult but stable, although most of the town is controlled by the Russian military.

Hayday noted that the Russians had made an attempt to hold a "meeting" at the House of Chemists, but "something went wrong, there are many casualties."

At the same time, Ukraine can still supply reserves and weapons to the regional center, he added.

On June 10, the Russian army damaged the region's railway depot. Hayday said that the enemy had attacked a number of settlements over the past day, adding that there was a lot of partial or complete destruction of the region’s housing stock.

In Lysychansk, enemy shells hit the territory of a glass factory, as well as a school and culinary lyceum. Five residents of the town have recently been taken to hospital in the cities of Dnipro and Lviv.

Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian military repulsed 14 enemy attacks, destroyed four tanks, two artillery systems, 11 armored combat vehicles, three motor vehicles and an ammunition depot.

In addition, Ukraine's air defense shot down four Orlan-10 drones.
