Pro-Russian Donetsk separatists admit situation is ‘difficult’ in eastern Ukraine

The president of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin, admitted on Monday that the situation on the front line in the Eastern Ukraine is “difficult” given the counteroffensive carried out by the Ukrainian forces.

Pushilin’s words, which have ensured that the Russian forces continue to control the area, come after the Ukrainian Armed Forces said they had seized part of the territory during the last days of fighting, especially in the Kharkov area, in the northeast of the country.

The situation remains difficult. The adversary is trying to damage civilian and vital infrastructure”, he has asserted in statements to the Rossiya 24 television network. Thus, he has alluded to a “massive” bombardment by the Ukrainian forces.

In this sense, he has made reference to the attacks perpetrated against the town of Liman, in the easternmost area. However, he has asserted that despite the difficulties, the Russian side has the situation “under control”. Also, it has indicated that they have made progress in “certain areas” although it has not listed them.
