Thus, the previously existing window in the encirclement of about 1km was liquidated and now the cauldron was eventually completed, even though the junta lost the ability of supplying already 2-3 days ago, because this "corridor" was fully exposed to fire and no serious supplying could be organized through it. The paratroopers who broke out of the cauldron, totaling 75 people (the organizer is currently subjected to criminal investigation) were apparently the last who managed to break out of the cauldron. Overall, the militia achieved an important tactical victory and brought the moment of routing the South cauldron closer.
