LUGANSK, November 24. /TASS/. Ukrainian troops keep trying to break through the allied forces’ defenses in the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR), suffering major manpower and equipment losses, commander of the Akhmat commando unit and Deputy Commander of the 2nd Army Corps of LPR People’s Militia Apty Alaudinov told TASS on Thursday.
"Every day, they make four to six or even more attempts to carry out counteroffensive operations but they have come to realize that in fact, all their attempts lead to huge manpower and equipment losses on our segment of the frontline," he pointed out. "They are like moths flying into the fire, they keep trying every day, sending their fighters to die and they actually fail to even retrieve their dead so thousands of bodies remain scattered on the battlefields," Alaudinov added.
He said earlier that members of the 2nd Army Corps of the LPR People’s Militia and the Akhmat special operations unit had established a strong defense line between the city of Kremennaya and the Chervonopopovka settlement in the LPR.
