Ukraine troops have entered Lyman!




Fighting continues. There are also reports of fighting at the town of Kreminna to the east, that was to have been the base of the next Russian line of defense after fleeing Lyman.




Lyman was a part of Russia for approximately 20 hours.

It appears Russians tried to flee in the last hours. Judging by video I've seen not all escaped.

27. Me too!

I've seen quite a few Russian troop videos, in addition to this one, and they seem to have absolutely no concern about their living conditions. I know it is war, but I am shocked at the mess they leave behind. The vids of the new recruit barracks showed disgusting conditions, but no one takes the initiative to clean up. I don't understand that.

I've also seen videos of older Russian apartments that are incredibly shabby and run down. Even if I were very poor, I would find ways to make my living space clean and organized.

Is this a Russian cultural thing?

3. get these gentlemen some duct tape!

Scotch tape is wretched for flag raising.

FYI:

"Lyman, called Krasnyi Lyman from 1925 to 2016, is a city in the Donetsk region of Ukraine." (Google maps)

So much for your annexation, Putin.

5. And Lyman is in Donetsk which Putin just said is part of Russia.



BTW that 2nd video that showed the Russians were living in muddy holes in the ground w/out
support shows just how badly the war is going for Putin.

Of course this is war and you never know what is propaganda.

20. The person in the passenger front seat holding the cat looks like a woman,

as does the person right behind the driver, if so, I certainly wouldn't want to be the Russian that comes up against them.

Maybe I'm wrong, but they sure do look like fierce women warriors.

Semper Fi Ukraine.

General Mud is about to make a repeat appearance before the freeze.

No paywall link to Washington Post front page article:

https://wapo.st/3UU8CsD

snip

Ukrainian forces say they have surrounded Russian forces in the eastern city of Lyman, pressing their counterattacks in a region that Moscow now claims as its own. Ukrainian forces advanced on the key transport hub overnight even as Russia put on a show of celebrating its annexation of Ukrainian territory with a grand ceremony and a pop concert in Moscow.

10. Putin is up for "re-election" in 2 years.

By then I think Russia will have had its fill of him killing Russians.
Maybe before that there will be some Ukrainian tractors in Red Square towing an Aurus Senat limousine. (I hope)

I would seriously like to see Ukraine annex 1 Russian city as a statement.

Thanks for posting!
