CNN — The ghostly emptiness of the streets of Lyman in eastern Ukraine belies this city's strategic significance. There are no signs of Russian troops at all on Sunday -- few damaged Russian tanks, or Russian dead, or Russian prisoners. Sergiy Cherevatiy, of the Eastern Group of Armed Forces of Ukraine, said Russian troops had formed convoys to break through the de facto encirclement of the city. "Bad," he said, describing the months of Russian control. Many of the Ukrainian troops had already moved on towards the next target in Russia's rapidly faltering lines of defense -- Kremmina, further to the east.
