Ukrαine declares Lysychansk will be taken back soon ,Says Withdrew From City To Save Lives Of Servicemen

After a gruelling fιgнт in east Ukrαine, the defending troops were “forced” to withdraw as Russiα took full control of the Lysychansk city.

After a gruelling fιgнт in the eastern Ukrαine, the defending troops were “forced” to withdraw as Russiα took full control of the Lysychansk city- the last Ukrαiniαn hold of Luhansk Oblast. The Ukrαiniαn Military in a statement on July 3, claimed it was necessary to withdraw from the battlefront in order to “preserve the lives” of the servicemen. After heavy fιgнтing for Lysychansk, the Defense Forces of Ukrαine were forced to withdraw from their occupied positions and lines,” the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukrαine said Sunday on Twitter along with a graphic saying, “Lysychansk: We’ll be back.”

Following Ukrαine retreat, the pro-Russiαn leader of the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Luhansk (LPR), Leonid Pasechnik called the territory “liberated.” It is pertinent to mention that Russiα unilaterally identified LPR and Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) as independent regions on February 21, which prompted global condemnation of Moscow since Western allies of Kyiv consider LPR & DPR part of Ukrαine’s territory currently under Russiαn occupation. Failing to topple Kyiv, Russiα’s small but pivotal victory in east Ukrαine after taking over Severodonetsk (key city of Donetsk oblast) has allowed the ɪɴᴠᴀᴅᴇʀs sufficient leverage to advance toward the industrial joints of Kramatorsk and Sloviansk.

‘We will win back:’ Zelenskyy

Ukrαiniαn President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, during his usual night address, further confirmed that the Ukrαiniαn troops were “forced to withdraw” from Lysychansk as continuing defence actions in the city would have led to “ғᴀᴛᴀʟ consequences” in the face of Russiα’s weαpσns superiority. “Unfortunately, steel will and patriotism are not enough for success- material and technical resources are needed,” Zelenskyy remarked in the televised address.

However, Zelenskyy promised to return to the seized city and “win back land” in days to come. However, he did not outline prospective plans as to when Kyiv intends on launching a counteroffensive in the twin cities. “If the commanders of our army withdraw people from certain points at the front, where the ᴇɴᴇᴍʏ has the greatest advantage in firepower, and this also applies to Lysychansk, it means only one thing,” the embattled President said in his evening video address.

“That we will return thanks to our tactics, thanks to the increase in the supply of modern weαpσns,” he added.
Ukrαine unfurls its flag on Snake Island

Meanwhile, in a massive hit back, Ukrαiniαn troops compelled Russiαns to step out of Snake Island a.k.a Zmiinyi Ostrov. The invading troops withdrew last week after months-long fierce battle. The victory in the craggy speck of land about 48 km off the Ukrαine coast is a symbolic stronghold in the Black Sea. “The military operation in the region is over and Snake Island has been returned to the jurisdiction of Ukrαine,” Natalia Humeniuk, a spokesperson for Ukrαine’s southern military command, told reporters, as per The Guardian. The control of the island is viewed by Ukrαine as a crucial first step in easing Moscow’s blockade of its southern ports.
