. In Case You Missed It – Ukraine And Russia Both Claim Control Over Lysychansk « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS – Ukraine’s eastern city of Lysychansk is at the centre of competing claims, with both Russian and Ukrainian forces saying they are in control. Ukraine says its forces are enduring intense Russian shelling there but insists the city has not been seized. However, Russian-backed separatists say they have successfully entered the city and reached its centre. Russian media showed videos of separatist or Russian forces apparently parading through the streets.

Russian sources have also tweeted video of the Soviet flag allegedly being placed on the city’s ruined administrative centre, but that has not been verified.
