“Currently, 217 settlements are under our control, including Mironovsky,”— noted at headquarters.
The mayor of Debaltseve, located 18 km away (the DPR has controlled it since 2015, and until that time Svetlodarsk was subordinate to the Debaltseve city council), Igor Zakharevich, said that a Russian flag appeared on the administration building of Svetlodarsk. He also added that he was ready to hoist the DPR flag in the city at the first opportunity. “We are not just going there, we are already at a low start,” — said Zakharevich.
