Censor.NET reports citing the latest update by the ATO headquarters press center.
"Certain units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have improved their tactical positioning in Donetsk direction allowing them to better observe the enemy and retaliate against the attacks of the Russian-occupation troops," the statement reads.
The headquarters also noted that Ukrainian soldiers strictly adhered to the Minsk agreements allowing strengthening or re-equipping their positions and relocating within the area defined by these agreements.
Earlier, Ukrainian showman and activist Serhii Prytula said his friends from the 95th Brigade told him that the Ukrainian troops took full control of Verkhniotoretske village (Yasynuvata district of the Donetsk region).
However, Prytula noted that the distance between positions of the Ukrainian troops and Russian mercenaries had significantly decreased, that's why the servicemen required advanced thermal sights in order not to miss the attempt of the illegal armed groups to recapture their positions.
