When a detachment of Russian fighters approached, four of the seven fighters left the trench and fled, the rest planning to take the fight. It was precisely on the bench where the Armed Forces of Ukraine were hiding that a bird-cherryomukha gas cartridge with tear gas was launched from a drone. The militants panicked and left the shelter. After that, one of them was eliminated, and the others preferred to surrender and threw down their weapons.
Earlier it was reported that Russian troops were methodically advancing in the Svatovo-Kremennaya sector. Now the advance is from Kremennaya towards the Torskoye settlement in the DPR.
Several units of the Russian Armed Forces are working on this stretch, including Akhmat’s special forces, whose fighters, together with the 3rd battalion of the 2nd Army Corps of the LPR People’s Militia, recently seized control of the exit to the railway towards Seversk.
