DONETSK, October 29. /TASS/. Allied forces are advancing along almost the entire line of contact, Acting Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin wrote on Telegram.
"We can see our forces advancing along almost the entire line of contact. Undoubtedly, it’s not yet about liberating several settlements at once but at this point, simply advancing is important, even 100 or 200 meters matter when it means better positions," Pushilin noted.
Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov said on Friday that Russian air defenses had shot down a Ukrainian Mi-8 helicopter, six HIMARS and Urgana rockets and intercepted three unmanned aerial vehicles in the previous 24 hours.
