MOSCOW, November 30. /TASS/. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have been trying to break through the allied defense lines near Svatovo and Kremennaya every day for two months now, Andrey Marochko, an officer with the Lugansk People’s Republic’s (LPR) People’s Militia, told the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Wednesday.
"The enemy has been trying to break through our defense lines in those areas every day for almost two months. As for Svatovo, they make such attempts two to three times a day, advancing from several directions at once, particularly from the Krasny Liman and the Kupyansk directions," he specified.
Marochko pointed out that all of the Ukrainian military’s breakthrough attempts have ended in huge losses, with Kiev’s troops retreating to their previous positions. "The situation is indeed difficult and tense but our forces remain in full control," he stressed.
Marochko told TASS on Tuesday that the Kiev regime’s forces sought to step up their offensive in the Svatovo area, trying to break through the allied forces’ defenses from three directions simultaneously.
