Moscow, May 21 (Prensa Latina) The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have occupied 40 percent of the city of Volchansk, in the province of Kharkov, affirmed the head of the Civil-Military Administration of that region, Vitali Gánchev.

Our units control almost half of the city, and they have sufficiently penetrated into the defense, expelled the enemy, to the extent of their possibilities, from all the lines that were in Volchansk, and have consolidated their positions, the official referred to the Perviy Kanal of the Russian television.

The main part of the northern part of the city is already in possession of the northern group of troops of the Eurasian nation’s army, he assured, and emphasized that the city is of strategic importance, so Ukrainian troops send numerous forces and try to counterattack.
