"Akhmat" unit suffered losses near Klishchiivka, occupants had to retreat - Atesh
A unit of the Russian special rapid response unit "Akhmat" suffered significant losses and retreated before Ukrainian forces near Bakhmut, Donetsk region. The escape of Kadyrov's militants allowed the Ukrainian defenders to occupy an important stronghold directly near the village of Klishchiivka.
This was announced on September 18 in Telegram by the Atesh guerrilla movement. It refers to information received by an agent in the ranks of the 83rd separate airborne assault brigade of the Russian Armed Forces, which provided cover for the occupiers from Akhmat.
"The "Akhmat" units have once again demonstrated their low combat capability, which has long been discussed in the information space," said representatives of the guerrilla movement.
According to their information, Russian paratroopers and mobilized soldiers had to cover the escape of Kadyrov's men.
"Very interesting and important events are waiting for us. But Atesh is not going to just watch them. We will act proactively in favor of the liberation of Ichkeria and the decolonization of the Russian Federation," the guerrillas summarized.
