Ukraine denies Lisichansk under full Russian control

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Yuriy Sak said on Sunday that the city of Lisichansk is not under full control by the Russian military.

Clashes in the area are "very intense for quite a while now," he told BBC, adding that "the battle for the Donbass is not over yet."

Earlier in the day, the Russian Defense Ministry stated that Lisichansk, the last remaining Ukrainian-controlled city on the territory of the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) has been liberated, likely meaning that Moscow and its local allies have taken over the entire region.
