ACCORDING to reports coming out of Russia, Russian troops have reportedly captured Ukraine’s Pavlivka in Donetsk Oblast on Monday, November 14.

RUSSIAN state-controlled media outlet RIA reported that Russia has taken Ukraine’s Pavlivka in Donetsk Oblast.

The Russian Ministry of Defence reportedly told the news outlet: “On 14 November, as a result of fierce fighting, Russian troops completely liberated the village of Pavlovka in the Donetsk People’s Republic.”

Earlier this month, there had been reports that Ukrainian forces were engaged in battles with Russian troops in Pavlivka.

Mixed reports followed.

Some reports suggested that Ukraine had retreated while others said there were no Russian forces anyway in the region and had retreated themselves.

On November 4, the prominent Twitter account @wartranslated wrote: “Ukrainian warriors at a position near Yehorivka, near Pavlivka, Donetsk Oblast. Surrounded but not surrendered. Video is taken on 1 November, the commander later made a decision to retreat due to relentless pressure.”

However, @WarMonitor3 wrote: “Ukrainian forces are in full control of Pavlivka after successful counterattacks.”

This was responded to on November 14, with one person writing: “Full control of Pavlivka” Not anymore.”

A video shared by @UnerkannatW on November 14 reportedly shows captured Ukrainian soldiers at Pavlivka.
