Russian forces have repelled an attack by Kiev troops south of the Kuzmino settlement in the Kremennaya district, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

“On the Krasny Liman axis, Task Force Center” units, aircraft and artillery repelled an attack by an assault group of the Ukrainian army’s 12th Special Operations Brigade south of the Kuzmino settlement in the Lugansk People’s Republic,” the report said. “Up to 45 Ukrainian servicemen, two armored fighting vehicles, three pickups and one D-30 howitzer were eliminated.”

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014.  The peace talks failed to reach tangible results due to Kiev’s position to settle the conflict by force.

President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation on February 24, 2022 to protect Donbass residents from Ukrainian aggression. Prior to that, LPR and DPR Heads Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin asked the Russian leader to provide military assistance.*i*sb
