Combained Russian-terrorist forces engage 122mm artillery against positions of the 72nd motorized brigade near Volnovakha overnight, Yuriy Butusov, a Ukrainian journalist, wrote on Facebook.

"The shelling comes from 122 mm artillery division. The fire is precisely aimed, drones are being used for adjustment. This is Russian artillery – the shelling is closely grouped, well-coordinated and quickly adjusted. Our people do not sleep, maneuvering to get out from under fire. The shelling continues. Of course, there is no OSCE anywhere around. It's probably the way they prepare for the demilitarization of Shyrokyno. This is probably to show "Normandy Four" Russia's willingness to comply with the terms of the ceasefire, and to speed up the withdrawal of weapons of an under 100mm caliber. Be safe, guys," says Butusov.

As UNIAN earlier reported, Russian proxies attacked Ukrainian troops more than 70 times overnight on July 24.
