Pro-Russian separatists announced the capture of a village near Baghmoud
Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk region have announced they have captured a village near Bakhmoud, one of the front’s hot spots, which Moscow’s forces have been trying to conquer for months.
Baghmoutz area in Donetsk region, “Released by the Russian Armed Forces”, say separatists of the region annexed by Russia. Unable to verify information.
Bakhmoutske Located northeast of Bakhmout, a town once known for its vineyards and salt mines, had about 70,000 inhabitants before the Russian offensive began in February 2022. Especially sought after by Russian forces led by mercenaries of the Wagner group. Months have passed to capture Bagmouth, but they face stiff resistance from the Ukrainians. The two camps engaged in a particularly ferocious artillery battle that reduced part of the city to rubble.
Pakmoutske is located next to the Soleder, the scene of fierce fighting. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky assessed the area between the two cities on Sunday evening “One of the bloody places at the front”.
