A fateful dilemma for the Ukrainian army

Defense of Lisichansk It will inevitably lead to heavy losses in the ranks of the Ukrainian forces and the remaining civilian population of the city. The Russians, like neighboring Severodonetsk, shoot at the settlement indiscriminately.

In addition, the Russians could cut off the supply corridor along the T1302 highway to Bakmut, trapping Ukrainian forces.

In some places, Russian units are advancing from the south five kilometers from the highway. Although other supply methods are available, they will be difficult and vulnerable.

Remaining in Lisitsansk would prefer that the city be higher than the surrounding area, and Ukrainian forces would be able to maintain Russian units for up to weeks, causing damage to them and relieving pressure on other fronts, such as the area around Slovakia.

This would make Lischansk new Mariupol.
