Russia-backed militants have used heavy weapons 53 times overnight attacking positions of Ukrainian troops and also targeting civilian neighborhoods in the Donbas, according to the Ukrainian Army officials.

Such provocations, including the shelling with 120mm mortars and grenades, are called to force Ukrainian troops to violate the truce signed in Minsk this February.
