The defeat of the Russians in this direction is inevitable.

This is stated in the report of the American Institute for the Study of War.

On September 28, Russian military bloggers reported on the successes of the Armed Forces in the Lyman area.

According to them, Ukrainian troops have advanced to the west, north and northeast of Liman and are working to complete the encirclement of Russian troops in this city and along the northern bank of the Siverskyi Donets River in the area.

"The breakthrough of the Lymansky "cauldron" will likely have serious consequences for the Russian group in the northern part of Donetsk and the western part of Luhansk regions and may allow Ukrainian troops to threaten Russian positions along the western border of Luhansk region and in the Severodonetsk-Lysychansk region," the message reads.

According to the Institute, the command of the Russian Armed Forces failed to establish informational conditions for the potentially imminent defeat of Russia in the Liman, and also did not react to the current losses of the Russians in the Liman area and did not prepare for the collapse of this section of the front line, which is likely to further reduce and so low morale of the Russians.

We will remind that on September 26, 7 units of tanks arrived in Liman of the Donetsk region, 2 of which were involved in a road accident during the pursuit.
