On June 29, regional governor Serhiy Hayday said that the Russians were on the outskirts of Lysychansk, but there were no battles in the city itself.

He added that Russian propaganda has already claimed that its troops control the city and had surrounded it, but that is a lie. Hayday also noted that the invaders continue to destroy the city and shell it from several directions.
