Ukrainian forces make further gains in east and south, official says

Quick Summary

A Ukrainian military spokesman said Kyiv's forces retook more territory in the Donetsk region on Sunday following the liberation of the key city of Lyman.

Residents of Lyman who spoke with CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh said that Russian troops began retreating late on Friday – just as Russian President Vladimir Putin was celebrating his claimed annexation of Ukraine’s Donetsk region, where Lyman is located.

The head of the Russian-appointed administration in Kherson, for his part, acknowledged that Ukrainian forces were advancing along the Dnipro river.“What can I say, my friends? ,” Kirill Stremousov said on Telegram.“The Nazi forces got through a little bit further but our defense is working.“We are repelling all the attacks and to be fair those who are panicking today on social media they have to take a pause.
