Russians conduct offensive actions but have no success in Donetsk region – Kyrylenko

In the Donetsk region, Russian troops are conducting offensive actions but failing to advance or achieve success.

The relevant statement was made by Donetsk Regional Military Administration Head Pavlo Kyrylenko during a briefing at Ukraine Media Center, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“In the Donetsk region, which is one of the main regions holding back the enemy, the situation is challenging but controlled. All of us are acting in a coordinated and focused manner. Thanks to our brave defenders, the enemy is failing to advance and achieve success in terms of combat actions,” Kyrylenko told.

In his words, Russian invaders continue to strike the Donetsk region’s territory and shell the de-occupied areas. Yesterday, the enemy used multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) to open fire on the city of Lyman.

According to Kyrylenko, casualties among civilians are reported every day. Since the Russian full-scale invasion started, a total of 1,235 civilians have been killed and 2,662 injured in the Donetsk region.
