Russia claims control of Lysychansk, a pivotal city in eastern Ukraine

Russia claimed full control of the eastern Ukrainian town of Lysychansk on Sunday, although Ukrainian President Zelenskyy insisted the fierce fighting there was not yet over. The city is the last major Ukrainian stronghold in the Lugansk province. If Lysychansk is seized, it will bring Moscow much closer to its goal of capturing the entire Donbass region.
