“We pay special attention to the fact that illegal armed formations sponsored by the United States are increasing their activity,” RIA Novosti quoted Yegorov as saying.

According to him, since August 1, 2022, militants have carried out eight attacks on government positions.

Yegorov drew attention to the fact that the increase in militant activity is associated with Washington's inability to control the situation in the zone occupied by the US Armed Forces.
