Russia Takes Village in Ukraine’s Donetsk

News Desk1 day ago

Referring to the Ukrainian settlement of Umanske, the ministry stated that Russian forces “have managed to liberate the village of Umanskoye in the popular republic of Donetsk.”

Less than 180 people lived in the little town of Umanske prior to Russia beginning its armed invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

It is located roughly 25 kilometers (15 miles) northwest of Donetsk, the region’s largest city and a Russian-controlled area.

According to Russian Defense Minister Andrei Belousov, Russia has advanced “in all tactical directions” as of Friday.

According to him, Moscow’s soldiers had taken control of 880 square kilometers (340 square miles) of land just this year.

Pressure has been building for several months against Ukraine’s outgunned and outnumbered forces, especially since Russia initiated a fresh offensive in early May around Kharkiv, the country’s second-largest city in the east.

Additionally, Russian troops have been making strong progress into Pokrovsk, a city located about 30 kilometers northwest of Umanske, in the east.

Kiev is hoping that its troops would be able to retake the upper hand in combat thanks to the arrival of Western weaponry, which it has been waiting a long time for.

Similarly, Ukraine has benefited greatly from US President Joe Biden’s decision to permit Kyiv to deploy US-supplied weapons to strike specific targets within Russia.
