A big problem for Ukrainians is exactly so many small towns in the east which Russian forces can hop in between, while evading detection, and artillery fire.

Lysychansk is surrounded by hills. The Ukr.ainians can see everything, and maybe pick them off one by one or trap and contain this Russian force in there from further advances or breaking out from the city into Ukraine hinder land of villages and towns. Im Afraid ,the Russian army doctrine, is simply flatten or destroy these towns villages when encountering them to avoid heavy casualties Ukraine will be like Germany ww2 retreating against superior odds

Hills are less of a strategic value in modern war. Hills are easily attacked by air power.

These towns and cities has industrial complexes with Concrete shelters, and the geography has rivers, hills, forest and gullies as natural barriers to stop tank columns. Each towns acts like nodes for logistics and cross fire support. A defensive line of attrition. Putin wanted Donbass and Luhansk as barrier against NATO. Americans/NATO has been supporting Ukraine since 2014 for exactly the same reason to gain foothold to Russia heartland. Luhansk and Donbass as industrial heartland also has a lot of economic value with abundant natural resources and easy access to black sea.

So far, we have not seen much of Russian Air Force in this conflict. Ukrainian air defences are mostly intact and are still flying planes

Hills are they over look the city surrounding it you need to clear them of opposing forces to tighten your control to move to next objective

Most attacks are done by choppers. While Ukraine air force might still have a few planes, their airbases are repeatedly bombed.

It's sadly inevitable. As bad as the war is going for them, they are still gaining territory

to imply that a war can go good, is a paradox isnt it? which war has "gone good" for any major power in recent times? war means bad and bad means war, so they are inseparable...except for people who have this fantasy that the Ukrainian war would be like roses for Russia, which obv only exists in their warped minds.

Ukrainian air defences are mostly intact and are still flying planes
why u spewing propaganda on PDF?

We’ve had this discussion with you on this before many times, Kiev has been given by London , stormer missile launchers and anti -aircraft vehicles that unleash starstreak. There are lots video clips of this system shooting down Russians helicopters, and planes. Why you are saying , is not happening by Russia

Airbases are bombed by Kh-101 air launched, range 3,000 km. Starstreak can't defend airbase from that.

Russia is never going to take Odessa.

After Russian armed forces and pro-Russian forces fully liberate Donbass, the South, including Odessa, will receive all of the attention it deserves. Right now, the entire LPR territory is liberated. The operation will go on to liberate the rest of the Donesk People's Republic in Ukrainian hands. Then the South will receive all of the attention at that point.
