Arestovich voiced the number of Russian soldiers surrounded near Lyman
Several thousand soldiers and officers of the Russian army, along with their equipment, were surrounded near the Liman of the Donetsk region. This was reported by Advisor to the Office of President Aleksey Arestovich on the air of Feygin Live.
While Vladimir Putin officially annexed the partially occupied regions of Ukraine to Russia, in the hottest point of one of them, fierce battles near Lyman continued in the Donetsk region. The armed forces of Ukraine blocked all roads last night.
“The largest figure that was mentioned 5.5 thousand people. The smallest is 2.5 thousand. But they will end in one way or another. The encirclement is always the end,” Arestovich said.
An adviser to the Office of the President also said that Russian troops made several attempts to release the encirclement, but they all failed due to the lack of cohesive reserves in sufficient numbers.
The Russian 752nd regiment was surrounded near the Lyman – the one that was surrounded in Grozny in 1995 and lost more than half of its composition.
Taras Berezovets, a soldier of the 1st Special Forces Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, says that “last night the last road was cut that connected Lyman with the rest of the occupied Donbas. The so-called Lyman cauldron was formed there.”
The Russian Ministry of Defense did not mention the events near Lyman in a Friday operational summary – it was the same until the last moment during the successful Ukrainian offensive in the Kharkiv region.
Referendum in the Russian enclave that has no land access to Russia. Give Putin his own medicine
The Ukrainian sunflowers will be thriving next year with all that Russian fertilizer being applied right now. 🇺🇦 🇺🇦 🇺🇦
I am a 100% supportive to the Ukraine people
It should be noted that Ukraine is smaller than the state of Texas U.S.A. and if Putin’s big powerful military isn’t even able to take over Ukraine in short order then he shouldn’t otta be threatening other countries larger than the state of Texas including the United States. Ukraine has shown the world just how puny and weak Russia really is when it comes to reality.
I don’t believe anything about all comments against Russia o Ukraine, the Media lies in everything,. what’s gonna happen it will, the only thing that I know,. is that we the people are paying for the politician mistakes.
If Putin chooses he may use this encirclement as a pretext to use tactical nukes on the surrounding Ukrainians. Ukraine would be well advised to seek surrender, not destruction of these Russian soldiers, and simply block any efforts to reinforce or supply them. Use the option of surrender with mercy to those that do. Ukraine does not need to send more Young Russian troops home to their mothers. This may serve to encourage more Russians to defy Putin openly.
