Donetsk, Nov 29 — DAN. Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republic servicemen supported by the Russian army, have liberated two more settlements in the Artyomovsk area, the DPR Territorial Defense Headquarters reported on Tuesday.

“As of November 29, 2022, the DPR and LPR troops, with fire support from Russian armed forces have liberated Pershe Travnya and Andreyevka in the Donetsk People’s Republic, ” the report said.

Pershe Travnya is a settlement between Artyomovsk and Gorlovka, which Ukrainian authorities had renamed to Ozaryanovka. It is adjacent to Kurdyumovka, an important transportation hub on the way to Artyomovsk.  The Seversky Donets — Donbass canal runs next to the settlement.

Andreyevka is located near the Klescheyevka village, another Ukrainian stronghold some six kilometers from the district center of Artyomovsk.  The Gorlovka railway passes all these settlements.
