General Staff Denies Possibility Of Militants Mousetrapping ATO Forces Near Debaltseve, Donetsk Region

The ATO forces had to take a string of measure to neutralise the enemy.

The Central Command of the Armed Forces denies the possibility of militants mousetrapping the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) forces near Debaltseve, Donetsk Region, chief of the General Staff Viktor Muzhenko has told a news conference.

He notes that terrorists intensified shelling of the ATO forces on January 2 and on January 15 change over to the offensive with n evident goal of moving away the separation line from the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk Regions.

The ATO forces had to take a string of measure to neutralise the enemy.

In particular, the Ukrainian army managed to stabilise the situation and take positions of advantage near Olenivka, Pisky and Avdiyivka of Donetsk Region.

The ATO forces left the Donetsk airport territory because the object has been ruined and no longer was of value.

The military entrenched themselves on the lines north of Holrivka and west of Yenakiyeve.

Most actively militants now attack positions of the ATO forces near Vuhlehirsk and south of Debaltseve.

Muzhenko though assures that there is a chance for constant reinforcement with materiel and personnel of the group of Ukrainian troops in this area.

The chief of the General Staff also assures that Ukrainian air defence facilities are full ready for the enemy's possible use of aviation.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, terrorists have attacked positions of the ATO forces in Vuhlehirsk, Donetsk Region on Thursday.
