Putin is in danger of serious humiliation Ukrainian forces make their way into a major city on Russia’s territ

Ukrainian forces entered the important city of Lyman, and Russia announced that it had decided to withdraw its troops.

Ukrainian Air Assault Forces are entering Lyman, Donetsk region,” along with a video that appeared to show a Ukrainian soldier raising a flag as tweeted by Defense of Ukraine

The announcement comes one day after President Vladimir Putin made the Donetsk region, which includes Lyman, a part of the Russian homeland.

Russia’s Ministry of Defense stated on Telegram that “the creation of a threat of encirclement” had led to the decision to relocate its troops to “more advantageous frontiers.”

The military developments occur as Putin declares both regions to be Russian territory based on widely discredited referendums.
