Moscow has been dealt a major setback, losing control of Lyman in the Donetsk region. Meanwhile, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov suggests that Russia use low-yield nuclear weapons.


This article by Tom Balmforth and Pavel Polityuk, writing for Reuters, makes the following points:
  • Lyman is a key logistics hub in the eastern Donetsk region.
  • Donetsk is one of four regions Putin says now belongs to Russia.
  • The capture came just a day after Putin proclaimed the annexation of nearly a fifth of Ukraine, including Donetsk, where Lyman is located.
  • Ukraine's successes have infuriated Putin's ally, Ramzan Kadyrov, who called on Russia to take 'more drastic measures'.
