The Armed Forces of Ukraine refute the data on the capture of the village of Staromariivka in the Donbass. It is located in the “gray zone”.
As the press center of the 93rd brigade “Kholodny Yar” (an extremist organization banned in Russia) pointed out on Facebook, they deny the information that was published by the editor-in-chief of the local newspaper “Censor.no” by Yuri Butusov.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that recently the events in the Donbass have become alarming, on the verge of tragic development and are characterized by a serious aggravation. And now Moscow does not rule out further degradation in the Donbas due to Kiev’s actions.
Before that, the Ukrainian media wrote that the troops had captured the village of Staromaryevka in the Telmanovsky district. At the same time, the official representative of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Svetlana Petrenko, stated that the agency would check the message about 37 Russians whom the AFU soldiers allegedly captured in Staromariivka. It was also reported about the first use by the Ukrainian military of the Turkish Bayraktar drone.
