“However, we still have a lot of work on mine clearing,”

“We’re now working on restoring electricity and gas supplies, but it’s still too dangerous there… It’s dangerous not only to live there, it’s dangerous just to be there because there is constant fighting, constant shelling, and we’re taking all measures to evacuate the local population,” he said.

Ukrainian forces are advancing in some areas and have had significant successes, he added.
