Lieutenant General Serhiy Nayev, Commander of the Ukrainian Joint Forces, paid a working visit to the units defending the positions in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions and stressed that the consolidation of Ukrainian troops in dangerous areas is strengthened every day.
According to Ukrinform, the press service of the Ukrainian Joint Forces Command reported it on Facebook.
“The situation in the territory where the fighting is taking place is difficult. In particular, in the Izium region, in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions, as well as in the Velyka Novosilka region, the enemy is daily trying to attack [Ukrainian] defensive positions with battalion tactical groups. The enemy supports its offensive with air strikes and missiles, MLRS fire, artillery fire of all calibers and mortars,” Nayev said.
He also pointed out that the relevant work to strengthen each grouping in dangerous areas continues every day. The situation is difficult, but it is controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, he said.
Nayev also noted the heroism and professionalism of Ukrainian soldiers, recalling that their service is very difficult and directly endangers their life and health.
