Ukraine has liberated the village of Klishchiivka — a significant development as its terrain will act as a springboard for further advances in the Donetsk direction. This allows Ukraine to recapture more of the territory illegally occupied by Russia.
Russian forces continue to repel Ukrainian attacks in the direction of Bakhmut. Claims that Ukraine has recaptured the two villages are unsubstantiated as fighting is still ongoing there.
There is a 1% chance that Ukraine will officially recognize a former Ukrainian territory (Luhansk, Donetsk, or Crimea) as independent before 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
