As the SBU Spokesperson said, measures were taken to repel a possible assault at the location of internal troops in Donetsk, a scheme of defense and mining of Druzhkivka, Sloviansk and Kramatorsk streets was exposed, subversive separatist groups were identified in the villages of Makarivka, Chervony Lyman and the city of Luhansk, and plans of the militants were foiled to capture soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near the village of Karpivka.

"Kramatorsk (except for the downtown) is under control of the Antiterrorist Center. In Sloviansk and Kramatorsk the separatists continue to hold the buildings of the Interior Ministry department, SBU and executive committees. In Chervony Lyman, the formation of armed separatist groups is observed, numbering up to 100 people," Ostapenko said.
