He said this on Espreso TV.
"Our artillery is working very hard in the Melitopol sector. Over the past two days, they have worked on the invading Russian forces very well. This is especially true for the concentration of enemy troops and their logistics routes. Our infantry is also working. There are some tactical advances. The Russians have abandoned a number of positions, which has created a gray zone. Now they are trying to launch counterattacks to regain the lost positions," said Denysov.
The serviceman noted that counter-battery fighting continues in the Mariupol sector.
"Russians are conducting rotations. They bring mobilized soldiers to the positions. Speaking generally about the situation in the Melitopol sector, it is the work of artillery on both sides. There is also constant work of Russian aviation. We are currently making progress, which is caused by the need to stabilize the front line," he added.
There were 26 combat engagements at the front over the day, the enemy launched 3 missile strikes and 80 airstrikes. Read the General Staff's report for October 3.
