Ukrainian Armed Forces Counteroffensive – Ukraine has not yet regained control of Andreevka

According to the command of the 3rd Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, it is too early to talk about the evacuation of a settlement in Donbass, and such statements could harm the lives of the defenders. Deputy Minister Malyar has already edited the post in which she announced Andreevka’s release.

The statement that the Ukrainian armed forces regained control of the village of Andreevka in the direction of Bakhmut is untrue. The press service of the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade wrote about this in its Telegram channel.

According to the command, heavy and fierce fighting continues in the Kleshievka and Andreevka areas of the Donetsk region, so information about the evacuation of one of the settlements is incorrect and premature.

“Such statements are harmful, endanger the lives of personnel and interfere with the conduct of combat operations,” said a statement from the brigade currently deployed in this sector of the front.

“Liberation of Andreevka”: what is known

On September 14, Deputy Defense Minister Anna Malyar wrote in her Telegram channel that the Ukrainian military had regained control of the village of Andreevka despite heavy fighting in the Bakhmut region of the Donetsk region.

“And we have good news there. Andreevka is ours. We are consolidating our positions,” said Anna Malyar.

She did not comment on the 3rd Separate Assault Brigade’s denial at the time the material was published, only editing her post and adding that “the situation is very complex and fluid.”

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also did not provide any new information on the situation in the direction of Bakhmut. The morning report reported only heavy fighting at Bakhmut, Kleschyevka, Andreyevka and Kurdjumivka in the Donetsk region.

We would like to remind you that on September 13, a military expert and reserve major of the battalion named after him arrived. General Kulchitsky Alexey Getman stated that after the loss of Kleshchievka, Russian forces would not make a “goodwill gesture” and would not abandon Bakhmut. Russia sent tens of thousands of soldiers to occupy a town in Donbass and “sold” it as a victory over Ukraine.
