The head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin, said on the air of the Rossiya 24 TV channel that the Russian military continues to advance in several directions of the DPR. “There are advances along the fronts: in the Avdeevsky direction, in the Maryinsky direction and in the Ugledarsky direction,” he said. At the same time, according to Pushilin, at the moment the Armed Forces of Ukraine are too close to the cities of the DPR, so residents of such cities as Donetsk, Gorlovka and Yasinovataya are under fire from the Ukrainian military. Earlier, an officer of the People’s Militia of the Lugansk People’s Republic, Andriy Marochko, informed that the Ukrainian military could resume a full-scale offensive within a week. According to Marochko, the Ukrainian Armed Forces may resume offensive attempts within the next five to seven days. As Marochko added, among the plans of the Ukrainian military may be an attack on the cities of Svatovo and Kremennaya. According to him, soon a stable temperature below zero is predicted in this region, which can be comfortable for the advancement of wheeled and tracked military equipment.
