Ukrainian artillery continues to block the only remaining escape route for Russian forces on the Kremennaya-Torskoye road.
Ukrainian defenders will recapture the Liman of the Donetsk region, where, according to the Kremlin propagandists themselves, the group of the RF Armed Forces fell into an “operational encirclement”, within the next 72 hours.
This is stated in the report of the Institute for the Study of War.
In turn, the Russian side stated on September 30 that the invaders still control one of the roads to Torskoye, while the Armed Forces of Ukraine blocked the Drobyshevo-Torskoye road in the Stavok area.
At the same time, judging by the published video, Ukrainian artillery reaches the fleeing units of the enemy units on the way to Torskoye.
According to the same military bloggers, Ukrainian artillery continues to block the only remaining escape route for Russian forces on the Kremennaya-Torskoye road.
Many propagandists argued that the Russian withdrawal from Liman was reminiscent in its randomness of the retreat from Balakliya, Kharkov region.
They criticized the Russian command for the lack of artillery support. According to them, the Russian Armed Forces are shelling the Nikolaev region, and are not helping the defense of Liman.
Liman “boiler” – what is known
A few days ago, Western analysts said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine seem to be intent on encircling Russian forces in Liman, Donetsk region . This will allow the defenders to threaten the positions of the Russian Federation along the western border of the Lugansk region and in the area of Severodonetsk-Lysichansk
The fighters took all the paths under fire control , so the Russians have little chance of repeating the mass withdrawal from their positions, as was the case in the Kharkiv region.
According to the latest data, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have probably almost completed the encirclement of the Russian group in Liman and cut off critical ground communications supporting Russian troops in the Drobyshevo-Liman area.
Russian propagandists in their social networks confirm that their group is “in an operational environment” and that the invaders are conducting “all-round defense”.
In Russia, the situation in Liman is called “extremely difficult.”
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has already lost more than 59 thousand of its soldiers and thousands of pieces of equipment in the war with Ukraine.
