As of the evening of October 1, Ukrainian troops took control of Liman in the Donetsk region.

The Armed Forces are actually finishing off the remnants of the Russian group.

The advisor of the President's Office, Oleksiy Arestovych, told about this in a conversation with the Russian oppositionist, lawyer Mark Feigin.

"Russian sources reported that Lyman left the Russian Federation at an accelerated rate, having stayed there for as long as 12 hours. And these same evil tongues - not us, not me - claim that

the accelerated exit of other settlements from the Russian Federation, such as Kharkiv, began there

, as well as in Luhansk and Donetsk regions

at the same time. So, they say - Dibrova or Kuzmine. In Zarichny and Torsky - it is not clear, some say that the fighting is already going on," Arestovych said.

According to his data, fighting continues for Liman, but currently up to 5 battalions of the Russian army have already been destroyed there or are in the process of being destroyed.

Some of the enemies were captured.

"The president confirmed the Ukrainian flag in Liman, although the fighting is going on there. Well, of course, they are being finished there now. According to the specified number, about five battalions have laid down or are being finished there. There are many destroyed enemies lying on the roads. That is

, the enemy is partially destroyed, partially is being destroyed

, was partially captured. But, by the way, many managed to go on foot through the forests. They left a lot of military equipment," the OP adviser described the situation in Lyman.

We will remind you that on October 1, Ukrainian troops entered Liman in the Donetsk region and unfurled the Ukrainian flag there.

Before that, the Armed Forces liberated five settlements near Liman in Donbass - Yampil, Novoselivka, Shandrigolovo, Drobysheve, Stavky, thereby encircling the Russian group.
