Militants completely left Shyrokyne a few days ago, Oleksandr Kindsfater, press officer of ‘M’ sector, wrote on his Facebook page.

“Our units established control over the settlement. Elimination of explosive devices and demining of the territory are ongoing,” wrote the officer.

Oleksander Kindsfater also said that militants have mined almost every home and planted a lot of trip-wire and booby trap mines when leaving the area.

“Our units are ready at any moment to repulse the enemy’s attack,” said the press officer.
