Ukrainian forces may attempt an advance in the north of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) “in the very near future,” its head Denis Pushilin said on Thursday.
In a video address posted on Telegram, Pushilin described the situation in the area as “extremely difficult.”
“There are alarming signs, the enemy has concentrated quite serious forces, and it is possible that in the very near future it will try to change the situation and go on the counteroffensive,” Pushilin said.
He reassured everyone that the DPR and Russian forces were “doing everything possible” and that he was closely following developments at the front.
On Thursday morning, Donetsk authorities reported that the artillery strikes of Ukrainian forces on the city had left six people dead and seven injured.
