MOSCOW, December 4. /TASS/. /TASS/. Units of the expeditionary volunteer assault corps have blocked off the last highway used to deliver supplies to the Ukrainian forces near Artyomovsk and Soledar, the unit’s spokesman Alexey Selivanov has told TASS.
"The corps’ four columns reached the Artyomovsk-Chasov Yar road north of Artyomovsk. The columns of the North and Vostok V brigades, the Yenisei Cossack detachment and the Nevsky detachment cut the last supply road leading to the Ukrainian Bakhmut-Soledar group," Selivanov said.
He added that Ukrainian soldiers were using the Volga radio frequency to declare they were ready to lay down arms. Barrier troops, minefields and Ukrainian drones hovering over their positions impede surrender attempts. For fear of being hit by friendly fire Ukrainian soldiers have to wait until nighttime to give up to the Russian forces.
Selivanov said control of the road opened a gateway to Kramatorsk.
