According to him, the Russian units working in the Artemovsk region achieve very serious results every day.
“Although we can see on the map that Kleshcheevka is in fact a very small piece of land, the fact remains that even this piece of land is strategically very important,” Aaudinov said.
He added that the daily advance of our units leads the situation to the fact that soon, in principle, it can already be said that Artemovsk is approaching the operational blockade, and the enemy is being crushed from all sides. There remains one more artery that is not under full control, but it is also an artery that is already under operational control, Aaudinov explained.
Earlier, an LNR colonel, Vitaly Kiselev, said that Russian forces had established control over the strategically important village of Kleshcheevka in the DNR. “The ring around Artemovsk will eventually shrink,” he noted.
The Russian Defense Ministry has not yet officially confirmed the fact of the release of Kleshcheevka. The department takes this type of information very seriously. Therefore, without a thorough verification of the situation in Kleshcheevka, they are in no hurry to make statements.
