DONETSK, August 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Militia in Ukraine's self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) claimed a major victory on Friday, saying they had destroyed the Goryn battalion recruited in the Rivne region, western Ukraine.
DNR fighters said the enemy had suffered heavy casualties in manpower and equipment. Part of the Goryn servicemen were taken prisoner, they said, adding that no precise figures were available at the moment.
A DNR militiaman involved in the clash said the battalion was destroyed in Grad multiple missile launchers' attack near the border with Russia.
