Oleksiy Arestovych

, adviser to the President's Office,

said that the Ukrainian military took under fire control an important railway, thanks to which the occupiers supply weapons to the southern group.

He stated this in a conversation with Russian human rights defender Mark Feigin on October 29.

"Despite bravura statements about the Crimean bridge, there are big problems with the passage of heavy railway warehouses capable of transporting weapons and equipment. And even heavy trucks. The railway goes a little north of Mariupol, relatively speaking, Ilovaisk-Volnovakha-Tokmak. It supplies all the southern group. This entire railway is under fire control of the Armed Forces. However, long-range, such as HIMARS and long-range artillery. Already under our control," he noted.

Arestovych emphasized that two weeks ago there was an attack on the railway in Ilovaisk, which was "well thinned out".
