(Reuters) - Ukrainian troops said they had retaken the key bastion of Lyman in occupied eastern Ukraine, a stinging defeat that prompted a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin to call for the possible use of low-grade nuclear weapons.

LYMAN

* Russia said its troops had withdrawn from Lyman to avoid being surrounded by Ukraine's army.

* Ramzan Kadyrov, a Putin ally and head of Russia's Chechnya region, said Moscow should consider using a low-yield nuclear weapon in Ukraine after the loss of Lyman.

* U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin cheered Lyman's recapture, saying it was an encouraging battlefield success and that the loss of the logistics and transport hub will pose a dilemma for Russia's military.

* The "liberation" of Lyman in the Donetsk region is a key factor for "further de-occupation" in the neighbouring Luhansk region, said its governor, Serhiy Gaidai.

ZAPORIZHZHIA

* A Russian patrol detained the director general of Ukraine's Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the state-owned company in charge of the plant said. The United Nations nuclear watchdog said Russia had confirmed the move.

* International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Grossi is expected to hold talks in Moscow and Kyiv in coming days on the creation of a protection zone around the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia plant, the U.N. watchdog said.

CASUALTIES

* Ukraine's SBU security service said at least 20 civilians were killed in Russian shelling of a civilian convoy in late September in an eastern "grey zone" between Russian- and Ukrainian-controlled territory.

GAS FLOWS

* Italy's Eni said it would not receive any of the gas it had requested from Russia's Gazprom (MCX:GAZP) for delivery on Saturday, but the firms said they were working to fix this.

* Greece and Bulgaria started commercial operation of a long-delayed gas pipeline that will help decrease southeast Europe's dependence on Russian gas and boost energy security.

* Russia's Gazprom cut natural gas supplies to Moldova on Saturday by around 30%, said the director of gas firm Moldovagaz, Vadim Ceban.

DIPLOMACY

* Russia failed to win enough votes for re-election to the U.N. aviation agency's governing council, in a boost for Western powers that wanted to hold Moscow accountable following its invasion of Ukraine.

* Germany will deliver the first of four advanced IRIS-T air defence systems to Ukraine in the coming days to help ward off drone attacks, Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht said during an unannounced visit to Odesa.

Apparently, Russia cannot even say what are the borders of its new satellites. This is a transparent act of desperation served up with a dog and poney show to keep domestic sleepwalkers tamed and placid.
