Ukraine's counteroffensive

Since the summer, our soldiers have continued their offensive actions in eastern and southern Ukraine. Currently, active battles are taking place south of Bakhmut and in the Melitopol direction.

The latest liberated settlements were Andriivka and Klishchiivka in the Donetsk region. According to the Defense Forces, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have already established control over the Bakhmut-Horlivka road. This will provide more opportunities to eliminate the occupiers and their supply lines.
