In the Yuzhnodonetsk direction in the DPR, Ukrainian units tried to launch counterattacks on Pavlovka, Neskuchnoye and Novomayorskoye, but failed thanks to well-coordinated actions of the RF Armed Forces.
“In the Yuzhnodonetsk direction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, four assault groups tried to counterattack the positions of Russian troops in the direction of the settlements of Pavlovka, Novomayorskoye and Neskuchnoye of the Donetsk People’s Republic. All counterattacks were repelled, the enemy was thrown back to their original positions,” the Defense Ministry said.
As a result of repulsed counterattacks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost up to 80 soldiers and seven units of military equipment – three armored vehicles and four vehicles.
It is noted that due to timely strikes against the accumulations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the enemy lost the opportunity to transfer his reserves to the settlements of Prechistovka and Novoselka in the DPR.
