The Russians again planted their flag on the western outskirts of Marinka in the Pokrovsky district of the Donetsk region.
The video is published by Russian media.
According to them, “there are no more than two houses left for the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the western border of the city,” and now Ukrainian troops are building the main fortifications a few kilometers west of Maryinka.
The Ukrainian and Russian military did not officially confirm this.
Note that at the beginning of December, Russian troops were already hanging a flag in the western part of Marinka .
There were also statements about the capture of the city, including from Western media. For example, German military analyst Julian Röpke suggested that the entire Marinka was captured by the Russian Federation .
“After 20 months of intense attacks, the Russian army has completely captured the city of Marinka in the Donetsk region. The last Ukrainian defenders have been driven out of the once peaceful city of 10,700 inhabitants, which now lies in ruins,” he wrote.
But later the Russians themselves denied that information.
The war in Ukraine is now in its 655th day. We follow the latest news and key events on December 10, 2023 in an updated online .
