Control over Yatskovka was established during the conduct of assault operations.
In the Donetsk region, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine liberated the village of Yatskovka and improved their positions south of Bakhmut.
As an UNIAN correspondent reports, this was announced by the Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Brigadier General Oleksiy Gromov during an online briefing.
“In the course of the assault operations, units of the Defense Forces established control over the settlement of Yatskovka,” Gromov said.
This settlement is located east of the Oskol River, not far from the administrative border of Donetsk and Kharkov regions.
In addition, according to him, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to steadfastly keep the defense in the Bakhmut direction, despite the intense enemy fire, as well as attempts to oust Ukrainian troops from occupied strongholds.
“Along with defensive battles, our troops are also improving their tactical position. Thus, thanks to the timely regrouping of units of one of the mechanized brigades and the high-quality organization of the battle, we managed to restore the previously lost position and ensure control of positions in the area south of Bakhmut,” Gromov said.
