He noted that he learned the news from his "friends from the 95th Brigade".

“Our men (of course, within the framework of the Minsk Agreements) tanned the Russian-separatists’ hide and completely took control of Verkhnyotoretske. The town is completely under our control. No gray areas," Prytula wrote.
