Russia Withdraws Troops After Ukraine Surrounds Key Town | National sports


KYIV, Ukraine — After being surrounded by Ukrainian forces, Russia on Saturday withdrew troops from a town in eastern Ukraine it was using as a frontline hub. It was the latest victory for the Ukrainian counter-offensive that humiliated and angered the Kremlin.

Russia’s withdrawal from Lyman complicates its internationally reviled statement a day earlier that it had annexed four regions of Ukraine – an area that includes Lyman. Taking the city clears the way for Ukrainian troops to potentially push further into land Moscow now illegally claims as its own.
