The military operation is now concentrated in the neighboring city of Lyschansk, Severodonetsk, which fell to the Russians on Saturday.
247 – Russian forces are battling on Monday for control of Lyschansk, the last major city still under the control of Ukrainian forces in the eastern Lugansk region, Reuters reported.
In a victory for the Kremlin’s campaign, the twin city of Lyschansk, Severodonetsk, which had been the scene of heavy fighting, fell to pro-Russian forces on Saturday. Russian missiles also hit Kyiv for the first time in weeks on Sunday, in attacks that US President Joe Biden denounced as “brutal”.
On Sunday, the TASS news agency quoted an official from the Luhansk People’s Republic as saying that Moscow’s forces had entered Lyschansk from five directions, isolating Ukrainian forces.
The General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces said Russian forces were using artillery to try to isolate Lysichansk from the south, but did not mention the entry of Russian forces or RPL forces into the city.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stressed on Sunday evening that his country needs a modern air defense system to stop Russian missiles.
A source familiar with the matter told Reuters that the United States is expected to announce this week the purchase of an advanced medium to long-range surface-to-air missile defense system for Ukraine.
During the G7 summit in Germany, Biden called the Kyiv attacks on Sunday “barbaric.”
