The summary of the 216th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 27th September 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

Ukrainian forces pushing towards Luhansk Oblast and liberating one settlement after another. The situation for Russian forces defending Lyman is becoming critical.

Russian fake referendums were concluded on Tuesday, with the majority of voters in favor of joining Russia. Russia will likely announce the annexation of occupied parts of Ukraine in coming days.
