"Our guys did a good job - gave them fierce battle. The subversive and reconnaissance group approached our positions. The suppressing fire was put down. The enemy was forced back which provided conditions for a counterattack on one of their strongholds. The guys captured it but failed to take a hold. The enemy suffered heavy losses. Five militants were reportedly killed, which is good, and 10 more were wounded. Unfortunately, two our fighters perished. They will never be forgotten. We will get revenge and push the enemy as far as the border of the Russian Federation," the marine with call sign Yurist ("Lawyer") said.
