Pentagon chief attributes Ukraine's progress to use of supplied weapons

United States Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin told CNN in an interview aired Sunday he thinks the Ukrainian forces are successfully fending off Russian advances with the help of weaponry sent to the country by the United States and its allies.

"It's not just about the equipment that you have. It's about how you employ that equipment, how you synchronize things together to create battlefield effects that then can create opportunities," Austin told the media outlet. "What we're seeing now is a kind of change in the battlefield dynamics," he said talking about Kiev's counteroffensive in the Donbas.

Earlier on Sunday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declared victory in the strategic town of Lyman in Donetsk.
