Ukraine: Battle of Starohnativka, 10 August 2015

On 10 August 2015 Russian forces conducted their first serious attack against Ukrainian positions since Battle of Marinka on 3 June 2015. Like at Marinka, this attempt by Russians did not result in any gains for them.

Ukrainian forces repelled the attackers and went on the counter-offensive. They gained some territory and even nearly captured village Novolaspa to the east from Starohnativka, which had been controlled by Russians. However, the latter used reinforcements to conduct a counter-attack of their own, causing Ukrainian retreat from Novolaspa. Nevertheless, Ukrainians managed to keep control of a number of heights in the area that had been under Russian control prior to 10 August.

The general situation on the front line in August 2015 is the tensest since the large-scale Battle of Debaltseve in February 2015.
