|Part of the Polish–Russian War of 1792|
Map of the Polish–Russian War of 1792
|Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth||Russian Empire|
|Commanders and leaders|
|Józef Judycki||Boris Mellin|
Despite Polish numerical superiority (8,000 to 5,500) the Poles were defeated.
The Russian army of Boris Mellin defeated the Lithuanian force under Józef Judycki. The confrontation could have gone the other way if the 900 troops under Stanisław Kostka Potocki and Tomasz Wawrzecki were used to augment the defence; instead Judycki called a two-hour counsel. This gave time for the Russian forces to regroup and they were then able to prepare a final counterattack.
