#3 Ukrainians claiming 5000+ trapped in pocket. Russian high command refused request to withdraw.

Expect some Russian to get promotion to field Marshall.

#4 The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation admitted that the Russian occupiers had left (https://espreso.tv/u-minoboroni-rf-viznali-shcho-rosiyski-okupanti-zabralisya-z-limanu) from Liman.

It said that the Russian occupiers retreated from the city of Lyman in the Donetsk region due to the threat of the encirclement.

#5 From what I am reading, it seems like the Russians are getting hammered. They have to run the gauntlet of mines, arty and ambushes all the way to Kreminna.

In the mean time, some Ukrainian are turning north to Svatove. Even Starobilsk in play.

#6 Russian high command refused request to withdraw.

Other sites reporting as refused request to surrender. Thus the Russian attempt to break out of encirclement.

Russian reinforcements sent to "hold the door open"

That column may have gotten ambushed at Saturday 1AM local time as a battle broke out outside Kreminna. That's what one site reported.

#7 The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine shares some details about the situation in Lyman.

We thank the "Ministry of Defense" πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί for successful cooperation in organizing the "Izium 2.0" exercise. Almost all Russian troops stationed in Liman were successfully redeployed either to body bags or to πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ POWs. We have one question for you: do you want a replay?
