Ukraine's army retakes another village in Russian-occupied Luhansk region

The operation itself took half an hour

The Armed Forces of Ukraine have retaken another village, Khutir Vilny (literally "Free"), in the Russian-occupied district of Luhansk region. A Ukrainian reconnaissance group has conducted a quick and effective operation. They ousted Russian-led forces from the village on the northeastern outskirts of the town of Zolote. The Ukrainian national flag was raised over the village.

No casualties were reported during the operation. Preparations for the operation lasted for almost three days, but the operation itself took half an hour, the commander of the group said. Now eight dozen villagers, who were used by the occupation forces as a human shield, again live in their native country.
