The enemy is practically deprived of both ammunition and armoured vehicle support. Our defenders have cut off all their logistical routes and taken control of both the road and the approaches to the plant. The defenders are also holding back the enemy's advance into the city."

Details: Voloshyn emphasised that units from the 59th Separate Mechanised Brigade are controlling the situation in and around Krasnohorivka.

"The enemy keeps trying to storm the town with small assault groups. From time to time, they try to storm the eastern outskirts of the town with armoured vehicles. Our defenders are using artillery and mortar fire to intercept all the enemy's attempts to enter the city," he said.
