Klishchivka in the hands of the Russians? Ukraine does not comment

So far, Ukraine has not yet commented on these reports. Whereas General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced that on May 22, Russian forces tried six times to improve their tactical position towards Kramatorsk. The attacks came from Bakhmut towards Chasiv Yar, Ivanovsky and the above-mentioned Klischivka.

The Ukrainian military managed to repel three attacks, and one tank and two amphibious assault vehicles were also destroyed. According to “Kyiv Post” the situation should be “under control”.

Due to the concentration of the Russian attack in northeastern Ukraine, Kiev was forced to direct its troops there from other areas of the country. On Monday, Russia announced that it had occupied a strategic town for Ukraine Biłhorivkain the eastern part Luhansk Oblast. Since the fall of 2022, Biłohorivka was considered one of the last strongholds of the Ukrainian army in this region.

The announcement about the occupation of the town appeared on the Russian Ministry of Defense's social media profile. It is worth keeping in mind that much of the information provided by Russian state media or Russian officials may not be true, but just an element of the information war on the part of the Russian Federation.
