 Enemy subversive groups resort to "guerrilla warfare," - General Staff spokesperson

Representative of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Vladyslav Selezniov argues that subversive groups of Russian-controlled militants have resorted to the so-called "guerrilla warfare" in the ATO area.

As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, he said this on air of 5 Channel.

"On the one hand, we observe significant reduction in attacks at positions of the ATO forces. On the other hand, we witness a revival of the so-called "guerrilla warfare." Militants as part of sabotage and reconnaissance groups bypass roads, lay land mines, set trip wires which kill both civilians and soldiers, and it is a big problem today," Selezniov said.

The General Staff spokesman said that during Aug. 26 - 31, 327 attacks at Ukrainian forces positions were recorded, while during Sept. 1 - 6 there were only 65 cases.

"This means a significant, more than five-fold reduction in attacks at our positions," Selezniov stressed.

He also said that over the past week militants used weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements only two times.
