The last city in Luhansk has fallen to Russia. What does that mean for Ukraine?


The city of Lysychansk has been heavily damaged by fighting. Ukrainian forces said Sunday they had withdrawn from the city, leaving the region of Luhansk in Russian hands.

Lysychansk was the last major city held by Ukrainians in the region. After their retreat, Russia holds the entire Luhansk region and has its sights set on completing its capture of nearby Donetsk.
