This and the following news were reported by NSDC Information Centre spokesman Andriy Lysenko during daily press briefing in Kyiv.
During the last 24 hours the ATO sub-units actively attacked in 4 directions: Donetsk, Luhansk, Alchevsk-Stahanov, Torez-Snizhne.
The terrorists suffered great losses of manpower and military equipment. Thus it is not surprising that panic spreads among some terrorists, the others are disoriented, frustrated and don’t have single strategy of further struggle.
Terrorists suffered the greatest losses in the area of town of Ilovaisk and in the village of Zelene in Donetsk oblast. The ATO forces have also blocked a large number of militants in the town of Krasnyi Luch in Luhansk oblast.
Yesterday the ATO sub-units were focused on isolation of Donetsk and Gorlivka terrorist groups. The soldiers of mechanized brigade and territorial defense battalions carried out raids that allow if not to stop the supply of weapon for terrorists located there than to reduce it. Also Ukrainian militants were engaged in improvement of fire systems and engineering equipment of checkpoints.
The recently created battalion ‘Zoloti Vorota’ [Golden Gates] began searching and neutralization of the remnants of terrorists groups in the village of Krasniy Yar in Luhansk oblast.
