Russian-terrorist forces continue to intensify activity in the conflict zone in the Donbas. The number of attacks and attempts to storm the positions of the Ukrainian troops has increased.

This is stated by Dmytro Tymchuk on his Facebook page citing the operational data of Information Resistance group, Censor.NET reports.

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.
