Donetsk, Mar 10 - DAN. Donetsk People’s Republic army units have captured a Ukrainian army ammunition depot, two armoured vehicles and one infantry fighting vehicle, DPR People’s Militia deputy commander Eduard Basurin said.

“Over the past 24 hours, DPR militiamen captured two armoured vehicles and one IFV, as well as a weapons and ammunition depot,” Basurin said adding that another ten Ukrainian servicemen had surrendered voluntarily.

The DPR militia, supported by Russian armed forces, pressed the advance along the border with the Zaporozhye region “cutting off the nationalistic units’ lines of retreat,” he said.

On February 24, President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation aimed at demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine. On the same day, the DPR and LPR forces launched a liberation movement supported by Russian armed forces. As of today, some 70 settlements in Donbass have been liberated. *jk
