GOOGLE TRANSLATE: ATU forces continue to carry out the task of restoring peace and order in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Ukrainian troops continue to narrow ring around insurgents and block them in the settlements and areas controlled by insurgents.

As previously reported, in some localities are continuing violent clashes. ATU forces are dealing with trained fighters and mercenaries from Russia. Despite the highly skilled and trained militants Ukrainian soldiers who during the time of ATO gained considerable combat experience, demonstrate effective results in clashes with Russian fighters. Often gave their lives to save their comrades.

Proof of the professionalism of soldiers who are involved in the ATO are big losses among militants who, by the way, equipped with modern weapons.
