The command of the Russian occupation army tasked its units to advance to the administrative borders of the Donetsk Region by the end of the week in order to "liberate" the territory of the so-called DPR.

The corresponding statement on the air of the telethon was made by Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Maliar.

According to her, the invaders intend to break through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donetsk Region at the end of the calendar year and reach the borders of the region.

Maliar said that now in the Bakhmut area, Russian troops, militants and mercenaries have concentrated a large number of forces and military equipment.

She added that the enemy managed to achieve some success in the Bakhmut direction, but the Defense Forces were able to push the invaders back.
