According to him, there have been no significant changes in the Shakhtarske sector. "We continue both the counter-battery fight and the destruction of enemy depots. Over the past two days, our troops have destroyed 11 depots of various levels," the spokesman said.

He noted that the occupiers continue to strengthen their positions and build additional ones. "The enemy should not be underestimated.
