Heavy fighting taking place near Klishchiivka, Donetsk region - Ukrainian Armed Forces
Heavy fighting continues in the area of Klishchiivka, Donetsk region, near the railroad that supplies Russian forces
This was reported by Ilya Yevlash, Spokesman for the Eastern Group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, on Radio Liberty.
"There is heavy fighting in the area of the railroad, which is also under constant artillery fire, both from them and from us. It is impossible to say that they control the railroad completely," he said.
According to the spokesperson, Ukrainian forces are currently trying to gain a foothold in this area in order to "completely deny the invaders any further movement in this direction and make the railroad ours."
In the south, units of the "Offensive Guard" have advanced deep into the Russian army's defense, and are now consolidating and repelling enemy attacks.
Russian elite troops currently operating in the western part of Zaporizhzhia have been unable to stop the gradual but steady advance of Ukrainian troops since mid-August.
