Russian forces gain control of Maryinka in east Ukraine, the defense minister says. The Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu informed President Vladimir Putin that Russian forces had taken complete control of the town of Maryinka, which is located in eastern Ukraine. This is one of the most important successes that Russia has made since the successful conquest of Bakhmut in May.

Most stories of Maryinka, located southwest of the regional center of Donetsk that the Russians control, depict it as a ghost town.

Putin stated that if the Russian forces could take control of the town, which had a population of 10,000 at one point, they could relocate enemy fighting formations away from Donetsk.

“Our troops now have the opportunity to reach a wider operational area,” he stated in a video of the conversation between him and Shoigu uploaded to the internet by a journalist working for the Kremlin organization.

Russia’s most recent victory on the battlefield occurred in May, when it captured Bakhmut, which was the scene of some of the deadliest combat. Ukraine initiated a counteroffensive in June to retake territories in the southern and eastern regions of the nation, including Bakhmut.

Although the Russian opposition is well-rooted, the counteroffensive Kyiv’s soldiers have been waging has not garnered much headway.

Since the middle of October, Russian soldiers have also increased their land- and air-based bombardment on the adjacent town of Avdiivka, which serves as the focal point of their slow-moving drive across the Donbas area of eastern Ukraine in the conflict that has been going on for 22 months.

In 2014, rebels supported by Russia briefly took control of Avdiivka. These separatists also took control of vast portions of eastern Ukraine. Later on, fortifications were constructed all around the town, which was considered the entrance to Donetsk.

Early Monday morning, the Ukrainian General Staff sent a dispatch stating, “Ukrainian defense forces continued to hold back the enemy in the areas of Maryinka and Novomykhailivka in the Donetsk region, repelling five Russian attacks.”So far, Ukraine has not provided any remarks about the most recent developments.
