Ukraine has encircled thousands of Russian troops at the eastern town of Lyman, a bastion that is critical for Moscow, in an operation that is still under way, according to a Ukrainian military spokesperson.

The capture of the town, which Russia has used as a logistics and transport hub for its operations in the north of the Donetsk region, would be a major new setback for the Kremlin’s plan to seize all of the industrial Donbas region.

“The Russian grouping in the area of Lyman is surrounded,” said Serhii Cherevatyi, spokesperson for Ukraine’s eastern forces. _Agencies
