Ukrainian paratroopers published a video of fighting for Klishchiivka
The soldiers of the 80th Separate Air Assault Brigade spoke about the liberation of Klishchiivka, Donetsk region. While performing combat missions, the defenders captured many Russian occupants.
Most of the captured Russians say they do not know why they came to Ukraine. This is stated by the Air Assault Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (to watch the video, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The servicemen say that enemy artillery was actively hitting the positions of our troops when they first entered Klishchiivka. Overcoming difficulties, the paratroopers entered the settlement under enemy fire and began to destroy the occupiers.
Many Russians were captured. The paratroopers recall that the captured occupants always say that they "did not shoot, did not kill anyone" and do not know why they came to Ukraine.
At the same time, the paratroopers note that they managed to drive the Russian occupiers out of the village due to their high motivation and coordination. However, the defenders emphasized that the liberation of Klishchiivka was not an easy task for our military. The paratroopers also said that only those who take part in combat missions know the price of the liberated settlement.
"I would like to recognize the entire company and everyone who made it happen. I would like to emphasize that only those who are directly performing the tasks know the price of the liberation. Everything is done through blood, sweat, and, unfortunately, wounds and losses. While performing a combat mission in Klishchiivka, two soldiers in the company were killed. They died the death of the brave while performing a combat mission," the paratrooper said.
As a reminder, the Ukrainian Armed Forces liberated Klishchiivka, seven kilometers from the fortress city of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region. Defence Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine showed footage of the battle for the settlement.
Ukrainian defenders continue offensive actions near the village of Robotyne, Zaporizhzhia region. On some days, the Armed Forces of Ukraine move 300-400 meters.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Army, General Mark Milley, said that the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is "slower than expected, but consistent". According to him, the Ukrainian army will need a lot of time to achieve its goal.
