The Interfax report stated that Russian forces had used Kalibr cruise missiles to attack the large depot. It also said Russian forces had shot down three Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jets near Donetsk and Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine.

"Russian air defenses shot down a MiG-29 and Su-25 aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force near the settlement of Snegiryovka in the Nikolaev region and near the settlement of Alexandrovka in the Kharkov region in the past 24 hours," said Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov.

In addition, according to Konashenkov, Russian air defenses intercepted three munitions fired from several Ukrainian Uragan rocket launchers near the settlements of Dolgenkoye, Sukhaya Kamenka and Malaya Kamyshevakha in the Kharkov region.

Konashenkov also said 12 Ukrainian drones had crashed near Ilyichevka, Chkalovskoye, Krasnoye, Malye Prokhody, Zavody, Brazhkovka, Vernopolye, Ovodmitrovskaya and Grushevakha in the Kharkov region, as well as near Vasilyevka, Stakhanov and Teplogorsk in the Lugansk People's Republic. Until now, the city of Sievierodonetsk has become the center of the battle for control of the Donbas industrial region in the east, which consists of the provinces of Luhansk and Donetsk.

Parts of the city have been destroyed in some of the bloodiest fighting since Moscow began the invasion on February 24. Luhansk Governor Serhiy Gaidai said Ukrainian and Russian troops were still fighting in the streets of Sievierodonetsk.

While Russian forces have taken control of most of the city, Ukrainian forces remain in control of an industrial area and chemical factory where hundreds of civilians have taken refuge. Having been forced to scale back its initial campaign goals, Moscow has turned to expanding control in the Donbas, where pro-Russian separatists have controlled swathes of territory since 2014.

Ukraine says about 800 people are hiding in a bomb shelter under the Azot factory, including employees and residents of the city. "No one can say whether and how many casualties there have been in the last 24 hours in Sievierodonetsk, where heavy fighting continues," Gaidai said on messaging app Telegram on Sunday.

"Everyone wants to evacuate now, maybe, but so far there is no such possibility," he continued. "In Lysychansk - the sister city of Sievierodonetsk across the Donets River - a woman was killed in a Russian attack while four houses and a shopping center were destroyed," Gaidai said.
