This is reported by Censor.NET citing Hromadske TV.
Not all of the soldiers have left; only those from the 128th mountain infantry company, the 30th infantry brigade, the 40th Kryvbas territorial defense battalion, and Lviv police battalion. Still, some detachments of these brigades have not come back yet, some were taken prisoners; no exact number is available at the moment.
As reported earlier, about 170 wounded soldiers were admitted in a hospital in neighboring Artemivsk on Feb. 18; about 40 dead soldiers were admitted to the city's mortuary the same day.
Those who managed to leave say they could hold the city, but for that they would have needed more sophisticated weapons.
