Russia seizes the entire Luhansk Oblast… Achieve some war goals
Russia spurs offensive in Donetsk… Zelensky: ‘We will fight back with US-supported long-range weapons’

Following the Russian military and pro-Russian separatist forces, the Ukrainian military also confirmed on the 3rd (local time) that the last stronghold of the eastern Luhansk Oblast, Lisichansk, had been seized by the Russians.

However, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky promised the people that it was only a tactical retreat and that he would start the war to retake as soon as it was ready, such as securing new, long-range weapons.

According to foreign media such as the BBC and Reuters, the Ukrainian army announced that Russian forces had seized Lisichansk this afternoon.

A Ukrainian military official said, “After a fierce battle, the Ukrainian army was forced to withdraw from the bases and front lines it had previously occupied.” said.

As a result, Russia took control of the entire Luhansk Oblast.

Considering the fact that when Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 of this year, the pro-Russian separatist forces took control of the Donbass (Luhansk, Donetsk) region in eastern Ukraine as the pretext of protecting Russian citizens, some of the goals of the war could be reduced. can be considered to have been achieved.

Initially, Russia tried to occupy Kiiu, the capital of Ukraine, in a short period of time, but when they were defeated in the end, they reset their goal to ‘liberation’ of the entire Luhansk and Donetsk regions.

The Ukrainian government insisted that the fight in Luhansk was not over yet.

“If our military commanders retreated their forces from a certain point on the front, where the enemy’s firepower was far superior, as in Lisichansk, that would mean only one thing,” Zelensky said in a video address that night. It will come back thanks to an increase in supply,” he said.

Then, while the Russian army is concentrating firepower on the Donbass front, he said, “We will reclaim the land”, saying, “We will reclaim the land” emphasized that

However, it seems that the Russian army is spurring the offensive to completely occupy Luhansk and Donetsk, such as by bombarding Slovak, one of the bases of Ukrainian forces in Donetsk Province.

“The capture of Lisichansk will never be the end of the Battle of Donbas,” the BBC reported.

Ukraine is preparing a new line of defense linking Bakhmut and Slovak, with much of the city of Donetsk under control.”
