Zelensky denies Lysychansk region is under Russian control

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denies Moscow’s claim that Russian troops have captured Ukraine’s strategic eastern city of Lysychansk.

“We cannot say today that Lysychansk is under [Russian] control. There is fighting on the outskirts,” Zelensky says at a press conference with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

Zelensky warns, however, of “risks” that the Luhansk region, where Lysychansk has been the last major city in Ukrainian hands, “will be completely occupied” by Moscow.
