An officer of the People's Militia of the self-proclaimed LNR, Andrei Marochko, said today that Ukraine sent additional forces and resources to the city of Soledar due to Russia's success.
According to him, the successes of Russian troops near Soledar force the Ukrainian command to transfer additional forces and resources from other directions, as well as to start using reserves, reports TASS.
"The liberation of the village of Yakovlivka, which is located northeast of Soledar, seriously disturbed the Ukrainian military commanders. A reserve battalion was sent to the Soledar region to stop the advance of our units and prevent the retreat of Ukrainian troops in the village of Minkovka," said Marochko.
On Sunday, the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, Lt. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, reported that Russian armed forces had taken control of the village of Yakovlivka and had begun clearing the village of remnants of Ukrainian troops.
