As it was reported earlier, The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine told about the changes in Donbas that took place during the first month of the Joint Forces Operation. According to the speaker of Defense Ministry Dmitro Hutsulyak, there are changes - first of all, the militants started to fear. 

"The Joint Forces Operation has been going on for 30 days already. After changing the format of the operation from the ATO on the JFO, we see significant differences...Firstly, the militants of the Russian-occupation forces are afraid, and this is understandable, of the Ukrainian military - liberators of Donbas. At the same time, Russia continues to provide forces and resources to the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions under the guise of "humanitarian convoys" that are not humanitarian at all, through the uncontrolled sections of the state border. The number of shelling from heavy weapons on the positions of joint forces and peaceful cities in order has significantly increased to provoke the Ukrainian defenders. All the while, the occupiers are attacking from the territory of these towns and villages, " Hutsulyak said.
