According to the latest intelligence update by the U.K. Defense Ministry, Lyman, Donetsk Oblast, is "strategically important" since it has a major railway junction, along with access to important rail and road bridges over the Siverskyi Donets River. Russian forces are likely to prioritize forcing a crossing of the river in the coming days, the ministry said, while their main effort likely remains 40 kilometers to the east, around the Sievierodonetsk pocket.
