The enemy shelled positions of Joint Forces units, using 82mm mortars proscribed by the Minsk Agreements, as well as grenade launchers of various systems, heavy machine guns and small arms. One Ukrainian soldier was killed in enemy shelling," the press center of the Joint Forces Operation Headquarters said on Facebook in a morning update on November 30.

Two of the attacks were reported in the Pivnich [North] tactical grouping responsibility zone: near the village of Krymske (rifle-attached grenade launchers, small arms, and heavy machine guns) and outside the village of Luhanske (rocket-propelled grenade launchers/RPG, tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns, and automatic grenade launchers).
