According to the Facebook post: "Trostyanets is free from Russian occupation. Today, the 93rd Mechanised Brigade Kholodnyi Yar, with the help of territorial defence forces and local partisans, has liberated the city of Trostyanets in the Sumy region from the Russian occupation forces.
Kholodnyi Yar fighters have managed to expel the ‘elite’ Russian ground force troops, the Kantemyr tank division. This was preceded by the defeat of the command post and the leadership of the 96th Separate Reconnaissance Brigade in the first days of the defence of Okhtyrka and the battles for Trostyanets.
After a series of setbacks, the Russian army has fled Trostyanets, leaving behind weapons, equipment and ammunition that the 93rd Brigade will use to liberate other Ukrainian cities from occupation."
Details: Later, the head of the Sumy Regional State Administration Dmytro Zhyvytsky confirmed this information about the liberation of the city.
Background: Fierce battles have been fought for the city of Trostyanets in the Sumy region. A gas pipeline was damaged during fighting near Trostyanets on Friday.
