Ukraine’s military said Sunday it had retaken the small village of Klishchiivka, the second settlement to come back under Kyiv’s control in three days and the most significant recent advance in its hard-fought counteroffensive to drive Russian forces from the country’s east.
After Bakhmut fell to Russian troops in May, Ukrainian forces almost immediately began a push to drive Moscow’s troops from areas to the north and south of the city. With Klishchiivka sitting on high ground overlooking roadways in and out of a ruined Bakhmut, the village was very much in their sights.
In recent weeks, Kyiv’s troops had been slowly advancing on Klishchiivka, taking heavy casualties in pitched battle.
On Friday, the Ukrainian military said its forces had gained control of Andriivka, a small farming hamlet a little more than two miles to the south.. Then on Sunday evening, the 80th Separate Airborne Assault Brigade posted a video of soldiers holding the yellow-and-blue flag of Ukraine in front of a ruined building and a destroyed church as loud booms echoed in the background….
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is set to travel to Washington this week to appeal for more assistance, The Post has reported. His visit to Capitol Hill is tentatively expected Thursday, when — backed by the Biden administration — he will try to persuade members of Congress to vote for Ukraine aid. The trip would be his second to the United States since the war began.
Zelensky’s visit to the Hill will be “very, very persuasive” in getting members to vote for Ukraine aid, Rep. Michael R. Turner (R-Ohio), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told “Face The Nation” on CBS. While Turner said “the House and certainly the Republican caucus overwhelmingly supports aid for Ukraine,” there has been growing tension throughout the GOP, and among some Democrats, over the vast sums of U.S. weaponry and money sent to Ukraine. “There will be issues over what the administration has asked for and what Congress ultimately gives,” Turner told CBS.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un concluded his trip to Russia, boarding a specially equipped armored train to the fanfare of a military orchestra in the far-eastern city of Artyom on Sunday, Russian state news outlet RIA Novosti reported. Kim’s visit has drawn attention in Washington and beyond over a possible arms deal between Moscow and Pyongyang, as Russia seeks artillery for its waning stockpiles.
In Russia, Kim viewed aviation equipment and missile systems in the city of Vladivostok, where he was met by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, state media outlet Tass reported. Over the weekend, the leader of North Korea attended “The Sleeping Beauty” ballet on the Primorsky Stage of the Mariinsky Theatre. Kim also visited an aquarium, where he watched marine animals perform, Russian media reported.
Kim was gifted five kamikaze drones, a reconnaissance drone and a bulletproof vest by the governor of the Primorsky region, which borders China and North Korea, Tass reported Sunday.
