Russian forces have captured a key town with major ramifications for their invasion of Ukraine, according to the Russian military and British intelligence.

Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said Russia had total control of the town of Lyman, according to state media.

The article goes on to state the following:

The UK’s Ministry of Defense said in a memo Saturday that Lyman will prove a critical area to hold due to its railways and key bridges.

The Kyiv Independent reported on Friday:

In a video address, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Russia should not think that it will be holding the cities of Lyman or Sievierodonetsk as they will eventually return to Ukraine.

Earlier, Donetsk Oblast governor said Lyman in Donetsk Oblast is mostly under Russian control. “That’s why we have to increase our defense, increase our resistance, and Donbas will be Ukrainian again. We will rebuild every town, every community,” Zelensky added.

UK Ministry of Defense had shared the following information in a series of Twitter posts on Friday:

(1/7) By 27 May, Russian forces had likely captured most of the town of Lyman, in the north of Donetsk Oblast, in what is likely a preliminary operation for the next stage of Russia’s Donbas offensive.

(2/7) Lyman is strategically important because it is the site of a major railway junction, and also gives access to important rail and road bridges over the Siverskyy Donets River.

(3/7) In the coming days, Russian units in the area are likely to prioritise forcing a crossing of the river. For now, Russia’s main effort likely remains 40 km to the east, around the Sieverodonetsk pocket

(4/7) but a bridgehead near Lyman would give Russia an advantage in the potential next phase of the Donbas offensive, when it will likely seek to advance on key Ukrainian-held cities deeper in Donetsk Oblast, Sloviansk and Kramatorsk.

(5/7) On 26 May 2022, head of the self-declared, Russian-backed Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin, told Russian state-controlled media that a referendum would be held if Russia captured the entirety of Ukraine’s Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

(6/7) If Russia did succeed in taking over these areas, it would highly likely be seen by the Kremlin as a substantive political achievement and be portrayed to the Russian people as justifying the invasion.

(7/7) However, the Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to conduct a well-organised defence of the sector, and continue to impose a high level of casualties on Russia.
