Russia Withdraws Its Troops From Ukraine's City

Ukraine and Russia wars began last on the ground neighbouring hostility based on suspicions. For months Ukraine has been crying for help as it is believed Russia invaded its territories.

However, on Saturday Russia said it has withdrawn its troops from the city of Lyman it had occupied. This is after Ukraine counteroffensive from eastern recaptured more territories.

Lyman is 160 kilometers (100 miles) southeast of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city. Ukrainian forces had pushed across the Oskil River as part of a counteroffensive that saw Kyiv retake vast swathes of territory beginning in September.

The said city is a key transportation hub, which had aided Russian troops in ground communication and logistics. Considering that it is now gone, Ukraine are now in pole position to push further and occupy other region nearing it like Luhansk region. It will be very interesting to see Ukraine overturn Russia forces as it will be a lesson to axe impunity among developed nations.
