How to stay awake during a siege
Posted On July 6, 2021
People in eastern Ukraine are being urged to stay on alert in case a deadly siege at the town of Dnipropetrovsk continues to unfold, the Russian Ministry of Defense said Thursday.
“All the members of the armed forces, as well as the armed groups and the special operations forces, are ordered to take the necessary measures to protect themselves and their families, and to take all possible measures to ensure the safety of civilians and to ensure that they do not get trapped inside the city,” the ministry said in a statement.
The military said the siege is not imminent and that Russian troops are on the ground, not in Ukraine.
The siege of the town, which is surrounded by Ukrainian troops, started on Monday and is now ongoing.
Ukrainian authorities said they have captured three captured rebels from the rebel-held town of Avdiivka, and have begun the process of removing them from the town.
The Russian Defense Ministry said Russian and Ukrainian military forces were coordinating with each other to ensure all the necessary conditions are met to restore order in the city.
It also said that a Russian soldier was injured in a gunfight with an enemy soldier near the city of Avno.
The ministry did not say when the wounded soldier was expected to recover.
Russian media reported that Ukrainian troops in the town fired on the Russian soldiers.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the town is not safe and that the separatists are in control of the area.
“The city of Dnyepropetrovo, which has been surrounded by the armed separatists, is not in the control of any Ukrainian forces or Ukrainian civilians,” the president said during a speech on Tuesday.
“It is in the hands of the terrorists.
The situation is tense, it is getting worse and worse, and it’s going to get even worse.”
A senior Ukrainian official, however, told CNN that Russian forces have not entered the city and that Ukrainian forces have been fighting the rebels.
Ukraine has denied the claim.
“This is absurd,” the Ukrainian official told CNN.
“We are not in Dnyeps.
This is nonsense.”
Ukrainian officials and local officials have repeatedly warned residents to stay in their homes.
The Ukrainian government is using its new military command to take control of all areas under rebel control.
That means Ukrainian military personnel are not allowed to go anywhere near Dnepropetsk, the Ukrainian military told CNN in a tweet on Wednesday.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called on residents to remain calm during the siege, and urged them to not move to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.
You cannot move,” Poroshenko said.
“You can hear the shelling from your house.
If you want to move, go to the nearest exit.”
“Stay safe,” Porney added.
“Do not be afraid.”
“I would like you to remember the importance of our citizens’ lives.
Do not be scared,” he said.
The Dnapropetrosk residents have also been told not to leave their homes or take photos or videos of themselves.
A video posted by the Dnapeptrovo residents showed a crowd of about 150 people walking toward the border with Ukraine, holding a black flag and holding hands.
The video, which was shot by the residents, shows the men, wearing military uniforms and carrying weapons, walking toward a line of Ukrainian soldiers.
Some of the men are carrying weapons and some are carrying a large bag filled with food, the residents said in the video.
Some people are carrying bags of food and water and others are holding a large poster.
In a separate video posted on social media, residents of the village of Nizhny Novgorod, which borders Dnapsk, showed off weapons they had received from the Ukrainian government.
They showed the weapons to a reporter and said they are carrying them to Dnupropetropol.
The footage shows men carrying a Kalashnikov assault rifle, while women hold up a Kalina, a traditional Russian-made rifle.

Ukrainian and Russian officials have accused each other of violating a cease-fire agreement that has been in place since February that has allowed Ukrainian and rebel forces to operate in the region.
“Dnaprovo is a very important place in the Donetsk region, and I am concerned about the potential escalation of the situation,” Porrowy said.
He said the government will continue to defend the city, as it is the center of its administrative and military functions.
“I am very concerned about it,” he added.
The attack on the town comes as the government and the rebels have made progress toward the agreement, which requires Ukrainian forces to leave the area of the conflict and return to their bases.
The agreement has been backed by international monitors and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
The deal also requires the two sides to stop the fighting, hold elections, and hold a joint press conference,
