A spokesperson for the Russian army's "Centre" division says Russia has "liberated" the eastern Ukrainian settlement of Lastochkyne, the latest in a string of Russian advances along the front. As the conflict enters its third year, Moscow's troops have mounted heavy attacks and taken Avdiivka -- a key eastern town near to Lastochkyne -- while Ukrainian troops are struggling with a lack of ammunition.
