The newest information from the Ukrainian Armed Forces indicates that battle is still going on in Peski.

According to Yemelyanov, Peski is presently "really a large garrison." "The natives were just removed from that place. There are now ominous entrenches that enclose the homes. Utilizing NATO technology, the defense organization was completed "he stated.

Peski, which is near to the Donetsk airport, holds the key to accessing Ukraine's strongly guarded Avdeyevka area.
