Ukrainian fighters established fire control over all roads around Lyman.
Defenders of Ukraine took control of the retreat routes around Lyman (Donetsk region). Rashists will not be able to escape, because all the roads are under fire control.
Defense Express expert Ivan Kyrychevsky said this on the air of the “Espresso” TV channel.
“We are on the threshold of an important psychological victory. In the history of the Ukrainian army, there have never been episodes when our military encircled the enemy, created a cauldron for the Russians and took them prisoner there. The Armed Forces of Ukraine took fire control of the retreat routes around Liman, which they could use Russians,” the expert said.
Kyrychevsky noted that the occupiers could retreat earlier and not get into the cauldron.
“But the reports that Putin personally directs military operations are confirmed. In the case of Lyman, it is not only the number of destroyed Rashists that matters, but the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the first time in history conducted a successful operation to encircle the enemy, and this raises the morale of Ukrainian defenders even more. than the Kharkiv offensive,” Kyrychevsky concluded.
