Donetsk, Aug 19 — DAN. The Russia-led coalition has liberated the northern part of the Zaitsevo township, the DPR Territorial Defence HQ said.

“As of August 19, the group of DPR and LPR forces with the fire support of the Russian army has liberated 270 localities, including Zaitsevo and Dacha,” the report reads.

The township of Zaitsevo is located north of Golrovka and is within its administrative boundaries. It has remained one of the hottest spots since 2014, as the northern part was occupied by Ukrainian forces and the southern part continuously came under fire.

The operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine began on February 24. *ot
