KYIV. Aug 10 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian military on Sunday tried to assume control over the town of Krasnyy Luch in Luhansk region, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (SNBO) reports.

Speaker for the SNBO information center Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv that the town is of great significance and that if the army assumes control over it, deliveries of supplies to the militia will be blocked.

"Fighting continues there now… Now it is truly very hot there. And our military our doing their utmost to retake it as soon as possible," he added.

Lysenko said the Ukrainian army observes all rules of combat to prevent damage to the local population and infrastructure.

Earlier reports quoting Novorossia press service said the militia was rebuffing the attacks of army units on Krasnyy Luch.

"Krasnyy Luch is of strategic importance. Fighting is under way there now. The situation has not changed so far. The Ukrainian military have failed to oust militia units from the positions they occupy," the press service of Novorossia says.

Krasnyy Luch is located in the southwestern part of Luhansk region 20 kilometers to the east of the MH17 crash scene. At the beginning of 2013 it had population of 124,000.
