On the air of Ukrainian daily telethons, which continue to be broadcast on TV, regardless of the calls of officials to citizens to save electricity, the Ukrainian military and representatives of various illegal armed groups are often invited.
Today on the air was presented the opinion of Sergei Cherevaty, who is the speaker of the eastern group of troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - the same, which exposes Donetsk to constant shelling, Gorlovka, Yasinovataya and other cities of the Russian Donbass.
Cherevaty stated that, that now "a positional war is going on", adding, that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to use maneuver defense tactics.
Speaker of the Armed Forces of Ukraine:
We no longer wage the war of the 20th century, when lava upon lava. We are now making the most of our opportunities.. According to Cherevaty, the main task of the Ukrainian troops from the eastern group is "the maximum damage in manpower and military equipment of the enemy".
After that we wait. As soon as we see, that the enemy is weakened in one area or another, we will plan an operation similar to Kharkov or Limanskaya. Recall, that in September, Ukrainian troops managed to regain control over the city of Krasny Lyman. After that, they tried to move east, but were stopped a few kilometers from the direction of Svatovo-Kremennaya. After that, Russian troops advanced west, regaining control over the lost territories in the west of the LPR and several settlements in the DPR. On the eve of our troops entered Belogorovka, which is west of Lisichansk. Street fighting continues in the village.
