Turchinov states Ukrainian army’s advancing on frontline

The Ukrainian military for 2017 on some sections of the line of contact in Donbass have advanced ten or more kilometers. This was stated in an interview with "Gromadskoye TV" by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Alexander Turchinov.

"It's nice to say that both the 2016th and the 2017th differed from the past in that we did not give away a meter of our land," he said.

In his opinion, now there are no forces on the territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics that could change the existing line of demarcation.

Earlier the LPR People's Militia reported that a subversive and reconnaissance group of Ukrainian forces was revealed near the contact line. During the shootout, three Ukrainian soldiers were killed.
