Donetsk, Jul 11 — DAN. The Russia-led coalition has established control of the village of Grigorovka outside Seversk, the DPR Territorial Defence HQ said.

“Grigorovka has passed under our effective control, mopping-up of hostile elements is ongoing,” the report reads.

Russia started a special military operation to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine on February 24. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the decision had been made after the DPR and LPR Heads addressed him asking for help.

The Russian leader said that Moscow is not planning to occupy Ukrainian territory, the only goal is to protect people who have been continuously shelled and subjected to other forms of genocide by Ukraine for eight years. *ot
