Russian military entrenched on the northern outskirts of Kleshcheevka in the Donetsk People’s Republic, said a scout with the call sign “Phoenix”. According to him, Ukrainian militants are not eager to meddle in the “gray zone.”

The Russian military took control of the railway. In Kleshcheevka itself there is no place to establish a foothold, Phoenix emphasized.
“Our troops moved to the line of the railway and went beyond it. They entrenched themselves there,” a soldier told RIA Novosti. “Kleshcheevka is the middle zone, a gray zone, where no one really wants to meddle. The enemy doesn’t really meddle in Kleshcheevka, in the southern part of the village They have more personnel.”
As for the north of the village, the Ukrainian Armed Forces set up several observation posts there. And it is premature to say that the Ukrainians allegedly took positions in Kleshcheevka itself.
