Ukraine’s military has announced that it has recaptured three villages in the southeastern Donetsk region from Russian forces. The villages, Blahodatne, Makarivka, and Neskuchne, are located near the city of Bakhmut, a strategic point in the Donbas region.
The Ukrainian military said that it had made the gains as part of a counteroffensive that it launched earlier this month. The counteroffensive is aimed at pushing back Russian forces from the Donbas region, which has been the focus of fighting since Russia invaded Ukraine in February.
The Ukrainian military has not released any details about the number of casualties suffered by either side in the fighting for the three villages. However, Russia’s Defense Ministry has denied that Ukrainian forces have made any gains in the Donbas region.
The recapture of the three villages is a significant victory for Ukraine, and it could signal that the tide of the war is beginning to turn in its favor. However, it is important to note that the fighting in the Donbas region is still ongoing, and it is too early to say whether Ukraine will be able to fully recapture the region.
The recapture of the three villages is a welcome development for Ukraine, and it is a sign that the country’s military is still capable of making gains against Russian forces. However, the war is far from over, and it remains to be seen whether Ukraine will be able to achieve its goal of driving Russian forces out of the country.
