Joint Forces authorized to push enemy back hard including eliminate attackers, - Commander Naiev

Ukraine’s Joint Forces are authorized to give a tough response to attacks committed by the Russian-backed militants in the Donbas.

Commander of the Joint Forces Serhii Naiev said in an interview with Fakty news outlet, Censor.NET reports.

"The Joint Forces are authorized to provide violent retaliation against any provocation, including physical elimination of the enemy units committing attack," he said.

Naiev also stressed that the primary task of the Joint Forces Operation is to stop the unpunished attacks on positions of Ukrainian military personnel and prevent the Ukrainian soldiers and civilians from being killed in the Donbas on a daily basis.

Ukraine’s Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak earlier said that the anti-terrorist operation in the Donbas will end on April 30 while the operation to liberate the Ukrainian territories from the invaders led by the Joint Forces Command will kick off instead.
