Kramatorsk, Ukraine-Russia claimed to occupy a major railroad junction as troops fought to occupy all of the disputed Donbus region of eastern Ukraine.
A Russian Defense Ministry spokesman reported on Saturday that the city of Lyman was “completely liberated” by a joint army of Russian soldiers and Moscow-backed separatists.
The city is the second small municipality that has fallen into the Russian army this week.
Dominating Lyman will give the Russian army a foothold to move forward in the larger Ukrainian-dominated city of Donbus.
The Kremlin said Russian President Vladimir Putin called on French and German leaders on Saturday to warn against the continued transfer of Western weapons to Ukraine.
