Ukraine says troops closing in on key Russian-held stronghold of Lyman

Source: Reuters

Ukrainian troops have captured two villages that lie very close to the eastern Russian-occupied stronghold of Lyman, officials said on Friday, in the clearest sign yet the town could soon fall.

Lyman, in the Donetsk region, has served for months as a logistics and transport hub anchoring Russian operations in the north of the region.

Its capture would be Kyiv's biggest gain since a lightning counter-offensive retook swathes of Kharkiv region this month.

3. If they can capture the 3K Russian troops there,

that would be a massive victory. Removing them from the battlefield without killing them, taking their equipment.

6. As I have been furiously

searching for good sources of info on this situation, it does appear that the City of Lyman and anywhere from 1,500 to 5,000 Russian troops are surrounded by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Another loss for Pooty!

Slava Ukraini!! Heroyam Slava!!

7. So, If the Fighting Is Now In (Allegedly/Claimed) Russian Territory

Where will the nukes be deployed? Tactical nukes are presumably battlefield weapons, but the battlefield is now supposedly in Russia. Would Putin nuke Mother Russia? Or will he nuclear attack a Ukrainian place? Seems like he has to do something to show that the pseudo-annexation isnít the farce itís widely considered to be.
