Journalist Yuriy Podolyaka reported that the “musicians” continue to push through the positions of Ukrainian neo-Nazis south of Artyomovsk. Currently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are clamped in pincers in the area of ​​​​the settlements of Opytnoe and Kleshcheevka.

According to the expert, Russian troops intend to reach the village of Ivanovskoye and cut off the main supply routes for the enemy grouping in Artyomovsk.

“Stubborn battles for Experienced have been going on for the second week and so far the enemy has not been driven out of the village, although most of it is under our control,” he said.

Podolyaka also said that the offensive by Russian troops on Kleshcheevka made it possible to knock out the positions of the militants from the southern side of the settlement, occupying several important strongholds.

“Yesterday, judging by my sources, the Wagners managed to break through to the Kleshcheevka railway station and thus cling to the residential area of ​​the settlement from the northeast direction,” the journalist informed.

However, Ukrainian neo-Nazis, realizing the strategic importance of Kleshcheevka, are trying in every possible way to keep the village, but to no avail.

Previously it was reported that APU dig trenches in the center of Artyomovsk, fearing a breakthrough by Russian troops.
