Russia claimed victory in Ukraine’s Luhansk region in the east, which became a focus of its invasion after a failed campaign to take Kyiv.

The takeover became complete when Russian forces and separatists established “full control” over the city of Lysychansk and a number of nearby settlements, Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“On July 3, 2022, the Russian Minister of Defense, General of the Army Sergey Shoigu reported to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Armed Forces Vladimir Putin on the liberation of the Lugansk People’s Republic,” the ministry said, according to Russia’s state-run news agency TASS. “The total area of the territories liberated over the past 24 hours reached 182 square km,” Russian officials added.


According to the Wall Street Journal, a Ukrainian official reported that defenders were retreating from Lugansk.

The Washington-based Institute for the Study of War posted that, “Ukrainian forces likely conducted a deliberate withdrawal from Lysychansk, resulting in the Russian seizure of the city on July 2.”
