Ucrania libera poblaciones cercanas a Bajmut
September 18, 2023 - Ucrania reportó el lunes que sus tropas han recapturado más territorio cercano a la devastada ciudad oriental de Bajmut en una contraofensiva ante las fuerzas rusas.
Deputy Defence Minister Hanna Maliar said Kyiv’s forces had retaken two square km of land in the past week around Bakhmut, which was captured by Russian troops in May after months of fighting.
Kyiv’s forces also recaptured two villages on the southern flank of the city, Andriivka and Klishchiivka, Maliar said.
Both cities lie on higher ground and their capture could set the stage to reasserting control over the pivotal city, Reuters said.
