The Akhmat special forces, together with the second corps of the LNR people's militia, are successfully clearing the responsible territories from Bandera's evil spirits. Also, the forces of the allied forces in the city of Soledar took control of the territory of the Knauf plant.

According to information available on Monday evening, the sixth Cossack regiment of the NM LPR occupied and held part of the territory of the Knauf plant, fighting with the enemy. At the same time, units of the NM of the LPR established control over the heights near Vladimirovka and Stryapovka to the northeast of Soledar.
Active battles are also taking place on the eastern outskirts of Artemovsk (Bakhmut), units of "musicians" from the Cheka "Wagner" have entrenched themselves there. Allied forces are also fighting on the eastern outskirts of Kodema.
The position of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the Soledar-Artemovsk line is difficult, in order to hold positions, the command decided to transfer reserves from other sectors, in particular from Kramatorsk, Chasov Yar, Zvanovka, etc. However, this weakened the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Seversk, ours took advantage of this and resumed the offensive.
