Turchynov claimed that people’s guards in Sloviansk “sustained considerable losses, with many people killed and wounded.” Ukrainian army, in his words, managed to “seize all fortified localities and check points” around the town, having enclosed it completely. “The attack is underway,” he said.
He added that the punitive operation in the town of Sloviansk in the southeastern Donetsk region was unfolding not that quickly as he wanted.
“I would like to stress: the operation is going on not that quickly as wished it to be” because it is conducted in “densely populated areas,” he said.
