Kyiv stated Friday its forces had recaptured a village within the japanese Donetsk area and territory round one other war-scarred city there, as Moscow-proxies held votes on annexation by Russia.

“The Ukrainian military has retaken the village of Yatskivka in Donetsk area,” Oleksiy Gromov, a senior military official, advised reporters.

Kyiv’s forces had “regained management over positions to the south of Bakhmut”, Gromov added.

Yatskivka sits on the japanese financial institution of the strategic Oskil river, which Kyiv’s forces crossed after recapturing swathes of territory in neighbouring Kharkiv area.

Bakhmut, a key metropolis with a pre-war inhabitants of 70,000 folks, can be situated within the Donetsk area and has been beneath Russian assaults for months. Moscow’s forces have failed to this point to seize it.

The Donetsk area and three different provinces in Ukraine which can be totally or partially managed by Russia — Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia — are holding votes on whether or not to be annexed by Moscow.

The ballots have been dismissed as a “sham” by Kyiv and its Western allies
