The commander of the Azov battalion, which took part in the Ukrainian military operation in south-eastern Ukraine, said the plan to seize control over Donetsk and Luhansk will take weeks to accomplish."It's going to be an extremely difficult and painful operation, which must not by any means be scheduled to mark Independence Day or any other date," Andriy Beletsky said at a press conference in Kyiv on August 11.He said the operation would last "several weeks at minimum."

He also said that the military operation was going to be difficult; therefore humanitarian corridors must be put in place in order to evacuate residents.Spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Andriy Lysenko said at a press briefing earlier that the military operation in south-eastern Ukraine would not be suspended, while local residents are advised to leave Donetsk and Luhansk.
