The specifics of the operation’s time and location remain undisclosed, but it focused on overtaking a Russian stronghold situated on a significant elevation, an objective pursued for several months.
This meticulously orchestrated operation involved close coordination with other army units. Utilizing fire support, electronic warfare (EW) capabilities, and drones, the Ukrainian forces advanced to execute the operation. The effort culminated in the expulsion of Russian troops from the stronghold and the capture of two Russian paratroopers, the SSO reported.
Following the operation, Ukrainian forces cleared the enemy position and secured full control over the stronghold, subsequently positioning certain Defense Forces units on the newly acquired heights.
