The Ukrainian military successfully changed positions on the Svitlodar Arc
Fighters of anti-terrorist operation managed to take new, more secure positions, in the area of Svitlodar arch. According to the military, the change of position will significantly reduce shelling by the militants, as well as prevent the capture of important objects.
Stepan Poltorak, who heads the Ministry of Defense, informed about the change of positions of the Ukrainian military in the Svitlodar Arc. In addition, Poltorak noted that the change in the positions of the Ukrainian military in no way violated the terms of the Minsk agreements. The Minister of Defense argued that the territory where the new positions of ATO fighters are located belongs to Ukraine.
We will remind, since the middle of December 2016, the fiercest fights in the anti-terrorist operation zone take place in the Svetlodar region. Opponents use artillery, carry mortar fire. Despite Minsk agreements, fighters seek to seize Ukraine-controlled territories. Explosions and shots do not stop here day or night, which led to the destruction of infrastructure. However, in fierce battles, the Ukrainian military also suffered considerable casualties.
