Ukraine’s military said its troops have captured a village near Bakhmut, the eastern city that fell into Russian hands in May after being besieged for many months.


According to a statement by the Chief of the General Staff of Ukraine’s armed forces, Serhiy Shaptala this Friday, the Russian side suffered significant casualties and loss of equipment, while Ukrainian troops were able to fortify some areas.


The village of Andriivka, which was recaptured, lies south of Bakhmut, the site of the bloodiest battle since the invasion by Russia in February last year.


Shaptala also reported “partial success” near Klischivka village, south of Bakhmut as a part of its three-month-old counteroffensive against Russia.
