The town, which is located immediately to the west of the city of Donetsk and has been part of Russia since last year's referendums, has been a major Ukrainian stronghold for years. The minister broke the news during a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Today, assault units with the troop grouping South fully liberated the town of Maryinka to the southwest of Donetsk," Shoigu stated. The liberation of the town opens up new opportunities for Russian troops and further damages Ukraine’s military capabilities, the minister said.
