"According to the media, a sabotage and reconnaissance enemy group of six militants has been neutralized in the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation] area. The Ukrainian side of the JCCC assumes this is only the beginning of the ORLO's actions, which could lead to a significant aggravation of the situation in eastern Ukraine," the JCCC said.
