Ukraine Surrounds Russian Forces Around Lyman Fortress : Military


KYIV (Reuters) – Ukraine has surrounded Russian forces around a critical Moscow stronghold in the eastern city of Lyman in an operation that is still ongoing, a Ukrainian military spokesman said on Saturday.

Russia’s forces in Lyman totaled about 5,000 to 5,500 soldiers, but the number of encircled troops may have decreased due to casualties and some soldiers who tried to escape the encirclement, said Serhii Cherevatyi, a spokesman for the eastern Ukraine forces.
