"These attempts are currently repulsed by the Ukrainian troops but the enemy continues to strengthen its capabilities in this area. The Russian-terrorist forces detachments deployed in this location (the task force consisting of 500 people deployed near the village of Yasynuvata and reserve components consisting of 2 000 people totally, which operate from Kuibyshev and Kyiv regions of Donetsk city) are receiving reinforcements and equipment," he wrote.
In addition Tymchuk noted that four terrorists' armored units were recorded in the area being supported by three artillery groups, discovered earlier.
"The total number of tanks concentrated by the enemy on this relatively narrow area exceeded 25 units. Several dozen armored combat vehicles (more than 50 units) were also recorded," he added.
