The war in Ukraine – news
As UNIAN reported, on August 16, Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malyar announced the release of Urozhany from the occupiers. She noted that Ukrainian troops are entrenched there on the occupied borders.
The commander of the assault company with the call sign “Wild”, commenting on the defeat of the occupiers in Urozhany, said that “a lot of people died, especially when they ran.” The published footage shows dozens of Russian servicemen running along an open road, apparently forced to use an asphalt road, as nearby fields and forest strips were mined. In addition, according to the military, the occupiers were hiding in large numbers in the houses, which were then hit by artillery.
As you know, the Defense Forces of Ukraine continue to conduct an offensive operation in the Bakhmut, Melitopol and Berdyan areas and have some successes.
