With the Russians in full retreat, the 9 Divisione Fanteria “Pasubio” was ordered to advance to the Bug River and cut off the retreating Russians. The leading battalions of the 80° Fanteria “Roma” arrived at a village and found the Russians setting up a blocking position. The Reggimento Commandant, Colonnello Epifanio Chiaramonti, ordered an immediate attack, hoping to ctahc the Russians before they had a chance to fortify the village. Per l’Onore di Roma (For the Honour of Rome), 3a Compagnia under command of Lieutenant Mori assaulted the village, forcing the Russians back, while Lieutenant Carbonari’s 2a Compagnia outflanked the Russians, managing to not only prevent them from retreating, but also stopping reinforcements from getting into the village. After several more hours of hard fighting, the village fell to the Italians shortly before 20.00 hours.
Attacker: Italian (80° Reggimento Fanteria "Roma")
