The Ukrainian defenders liberated Klishchiivka step by step, storming every forest strip and trench occupied by Russian invaders. The soldiers note that some of the Russian troops were taken prisoner, claiming that they had not killed anyone. However, these excuses were not convincing.
"I would like to recognize the entire company, from the first to the last soldier, who performed the task. Everyone who took part in this operation knows the price of this settlement - all through blood, sweat, unfortunately, through wounded and losses. Two soldiers from my company were killed in Klishchiivka. They died the death of the brave during a combat mission," said one of the brigade commanders.
