 Pulling artillery back to front line out of question, Ukrainian military cope with Minsk-permitted weapons, - ATO Staff

Despite the growing number of attacks by Russian occupation forces and the escalation in the use of heavy weapons, the return of artillery to the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) front line is not on today's agenda.

ATO Staff press officer, Col. Valentyn Buriachenko said at a news conference on Monday, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"It's out of question so far. The situation is fully controlled by ATO troops with weapons that are not banned by the Minsk agreements. Therefore, there is no urgent need for it," Buriachenko said, answering the question about the possibility of at least partial return of artillery to the front line in view of the intensification of attacks by militants.
