The Ukrainian military claims to have retaken Makariv, a town near Kyiv.
According to the latest battle report, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine claims its soldiers forced Russian troops out of the town, which is roughly 60 kilometres west of the city.
“Thanks to the brave deeds of our defenders, the Ukrainian state flag was hoisted above the city of Makariv, and the enemy was refused”, it said on Facebook.
However, it comes three days after a Russian mortar bombardment on the town on Friday, which killed seven people, according to local authorities.
