With liberation of Lyman, military reporter Rybar suggests an informational coup is happening in the Russian media space, which now comes from above rather than below, with Prigozhyn and Kadyrov expressing discontent about leadership. Dangerous words.
Ukrainian forces announcing the full liberation of Lyman in front of its administrative center. [Лиманська міська рада] (48°58'46.8"N 37°49'01.8"E).
Wow. Ukrainian Defence Ministry, 30 min ago: "All Russian troops in Lyman either surrendered or dead." Thank you, God. Thank you, ZSU.
We thank the “Ministry of Defense” of for successful cooperation in organizing the "Izyum 2.0" exercise. Almost all russian troops deployed to Lyman were successfully redeployed either into body bags or into captivity. We have one question for you: Would you like a repeat?
Another Russian report of a tank offensive in the north of Kherson frontline.
"Does the president know what's going on? Who reports to him? Where is the supply? Where is Armata? Where is everyone? How did it happen? Fucked up? Sold? Where do you share? Were there at all?"
One could argue that the success of the Kharkiv Offensive was partly due to the redeployment of Ru forces to the Kherson/Zapo. But Lyman is different. It was a hard-fought battle that was ongoing for a couple of weeks. The UAF emerged victorious. Ru is on a big defensive run now.
Prigozhin-Kadyrov terrorist alliance forming against Russian Ministry of Defence (Shoigu). Wagner PMC owner Prigozhin said he fully supports Kadyrov on drafting: - Contract soldiers who resigned. - 'Siloviki': Police & security services employees. & against sending conscripts.
Russian reporter Kotenok Z brings unfoconfirmed early intel that clashes are taking place near Kreminna. This poses a further danger as the frontline has not been established. The annexation euphoria did not last long.
