DONETSK, Ukraine (AA) - Ukraine's 24th Mechanized Brigade has taken positions in the settlement of Niu-York in the country’s eastern Donetsk region.

Known as Ukraine’s ground forces’ oldest brigade, the 24th Mechanized Brigade has participated in the 17-month-long war with Russia.

The brigade was originally formed as the 1st Simbirsk Infantry Division in 1918 during the Russian Civil War.

The Donetsk region, a part of the largely Russian-speaking industrialized Donbas region that Moscow illegally annexed last year, has been the site of fierce fighting between Russia and Ukraine.
