Quote: „The operation to break a logistical way through to the soldiers who were surrounded lasted more than two months. While we were trying to clear the way, the fighters held a perimeter defence, repelling the occupiers‘ attacks around the clock. The only way to supply them was via drones, which we used to deliver ammunition, food and water.

Despite being wounded and under constant pressure from the enemy, the soldiers held their position and were withdrawn for rotation as soon as possible. The position is under our control, the way is cleared.“

Details: The battalion reported that the soldiers are recovering in hospital.

According to Ukrainska Pravda’s information, the 225th Battalion is now the only unit that the Russians have been unable to force out of the Siverskyi Donets-Donbas Canal since spring 2024.
