Today on July 30, the Deputy Head of ATO Col. Konstyantyn Sokolov met with the United States Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt in Kramatorsk, Donetsk Region. During the meeting Col. Konstyantyn Sokolov informed US representative about current situation in the zone of Anti-Terrorist Operation. He said that the situation remains steadily tense.
Besides everyday shelling of the positions of Ukrainian Army, illegal armed groups also deliberately destroy civil areas and industrial infrastructure of the region. The enemy continues to use saboteur groups almost in all directions along the contact line, and Russian side provides material and technical supply and ammunition.
