DONETSK, November 28. /TASS/. The Ukrainian military amassed a large combat group near Gorlovka in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) for attacks in several frontline areas, Yan Gagin, adviser to the DPR head, told TASS on Tuesday.
"According to our reconnaissance data, the enemy has amassed quite a substantial grouping in the Gorlovka direction and [the Ukrainian military] is preparing attacks in various frontline sectors in that area, including Mayorsk. They are trying to distract attention from more faltering directions for the Ukrainian military," the adviser said.
Over the past 48 hours alone, the Ukrainian army has lost roughly 20 soldiers killed in failed attempts to attack Russian army positions in that frontline area, he said.
