The Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) involve primarily mobilized and reservists in the battles on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the acting head of the DPR said Denis Pushilin.

On the air of the Russia 24 channel, he also noted that Kyiv had transferred hired military personnel from Poland and Britain to this direction. However, the acting head of the DPR emphasized: foreigners are not able to turn the tide in the battle zone.

“Ukrainian armed formations primarily use their mobilized reserves, it is with them that we often come into contact,” Pushilin explained.

Earlier, the acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic stated that Armed Forces of the Russian Federation demonstrate some success in the battles with the nationalists in the Ugledar and Pavlovsk directions. According to him, the Russian army and the fighters of the People’s Militia of the LDNR continue to gradually move forward.
