The news agency TASS reports (source):

Ukrainian forces have taken under control two thirds of the so-called “grey security zone” in Donbass, Ukrainian presidential advisor and aide to the defense minister Yury Biryukov told Pryamoy TV channel on Wednesday.

“From the situation that we began with in May 2014, two thirds of the territory were liberated. Almost the whole ‘gray zone’ was liberated and taken under control,” Biryukov said.

The so-called “gray security zone” separates the forces of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), and the Ukrainian army. The borders of the zone are defined by the Minsk Agreements, and sending troops to settlements in the gray zone constitutes a violation of the Minsk deal. However, the Ukrainian forces have repeatedly announced taking control of new positions in the “gray zone” over the time of their operation in Donbass.

    Oh dear, sigh…..2019 and I believe it will all kick off UNLESS a normal party takes charge in the elections…. if they are held of course.

      I think nothing will happen just some with light weapons and machine gun fire. No big offensive by those ukro shites against the DPR and LPR. No major war between Ukraine and Russia.

        there might heavy weapons usage.

        But i don’t think they make any gains, and they will just end up with more dead Ukrainian soldiers.

    Well, they will soon run back to Galizia as Novorossiya and Malorossiya will be liberated!

    • Brother Ma

      Can’t wait! Send those Galicians back to hell!

    So the Ukrainian army invaded the deconfliction zone? Job well done, lol.

    • Brother Ma

      Very bad look for Russia. Two thirds of land taken over when it was illegal under Minsk Accords.Funny how no established zioamericanovassal media mentioned Ukraine’s illegal actions. Yet,if Russia farts it is broadcast as being a huricane!

      • Eskandar Black

        Russia is cautious not to overreact. At some point in the near future, the ukos will go banshee again, get surrounded and killed off and all will go back to normal.

        • Brother Ma

          Haha. I hope so.

    Cauldrons will soon be coming their way. Funny, how they can violate Minsk, with nobody bothered. Yet, imagine the hysteria, should Donetsk or Lugansk do the same. Would so laugh, if the ‘grey security zone’, turned into a cauldron, with the Forces of Donetsk knowing exactly how and where the ‘White Helmets’ plus ‘Kiev Forces’. would turn up. They know the script will never change.
