This was stated at a traditional daily briefing of the anti-terrorist operation headquarters representative Colonel Andrii Lysenko, Censor.NET reports.
"According to intelligence reports, the leaders of the Russian armed forces are conducting rotation of the occupation troops in the Donbas, which perform tasks in the territory of Ukraine since last December, mainly in the south part of the ATO. There is also a growing number of supplies of Russian military equipment, ammunition and personnel. This deadly cargo is transported through section of the border temporarily uncontrolled by Ukraine, especially in the Luhansk region," Lysenko said.
Lysenko also said that the social and economic situation in the terrorist-occupied part of the Donbas continues deteriorating.
"Economic and social crisis in the occupied territories is deepening: due to lack of efficient banking system in the occupied territory of the Donetsk region, there are serious problems with non-cash payments, making it difficult for the local population to receive social benefits and wages," Lysenko said.
