Russia aims to take a small city and spread the battle in eastern Ukraine – Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky 2022-05-28 10:44:49 –

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.
