DONETSK, August 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Militia forces have taken three towns in war-torn eastern Ukraine under full control, the Novorossiya News Agency said on its website on Friday.
During the offensive, militia units seized several villages in south-eastern Ukraine, the news agency said.
The self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) army said, “Street fighting continued in Ilovaisk yesterday. The (Ukrainian army’s) Dnieper, Azov and Donbass punitive battalions made new attempts to attack and take the city, but all to no avail.”
“Fortifications are being erected and trenches are being dug on the outskirts of Dnipropetrovsk and Sloviansk,” DPR sources said.
