Ukrainian units are trying to break through the defensive line of the allied forces in the Lugansk region, said a representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR Andrey Marochko.
The situation remains tense, he said. He noted that the nationalists are planning to attack in the Luhansk direction with superior forces.
“In some places, the enemy does not stop trying to break through our line of defense,” the officer stressed.
As the representative of the People’s Militia explained, the turning point will not come soon, because the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) “strongly push.” He stressed that the fighters of the Russian Federation and the LDNR strengthened their positions in the most difficult areas of hostilities.
Earlier, Marochko said that Ukrainian militants had failed the offensive near the village of Berestovoe. After that, they had to take away the dead foreign mercenaries on three trucks, the officer specified. He added that the evacuation of the bodies was carried out under heavy artillery fire.
