Earlier, deputy head of the NSDC Information and Analysis Center Volodymyr Polevoi stated that preparations are under way for a special operation to unblock checkpoint 32.
He reminded that the situation at the checkpoint has been complicated since Sept. 7, "when using the ceasefire, Russian mercenaries and terrorists equipped their positions at a distance of 200 meters from the checkpoint."
Journalist Anastasiia Bereza reported that as of 5:25 p.m. the Ukrainian soldiers surrounded by the militants at the 32nd checkpoint in Smile have not received any water, food or warm clothes.
