According to him, the situation is most difficult in the area of the Donetsk airport, Avdiivka, Horlivka, Debaltseve, Mykolaivka-Hranytne line, the seaside direction, and near Stanytsia Luhanska.
"During the battle at the Donetsk airport one of the assault groups of Russian-terrorist troops came under raking fire of the Ukrainian troops and suffered losses. The Ukrainian military captured two members of the Chechen Interior Ministry (Kadyrov's men)," Tymchuk wrote.
In addition, he noted that in the area of Spartak the Ukrainian artillery shelled the artillery positions of the Russian-terrorist forces which earlier opened fire on Ukrainian positions near the Donetsk airport and Avdiivka.
"The suppression of the enemy artillery was almost immediate followed by the Ukrainian artillery's suppression of fire points and means at the forefront. The tank unit of the Russian-terrorist troops which participated in the assault on the airport the previous day managed to retreat," he added.
