The combined Russian-separatist forces fired mortars on the villages of Bolotne and Syze and small arms on the village of Stanytsia Luhanska at night, as well as shelled a local roadblock of the Ukrainian armed forces, as a result of which one soldier of the 128th brigade was wounded, Luhansk Regional Military and Civil Administration's press service told an UNIAN correspondent.

"It was rather quiet along the entire demarcation line in the last day, except for local skirmishes. It seems that the terrorists have tried to get on to targets with the banned weapons in the last days, and now they are just waiting to see the reaction of the international community and Ukraine to this," Chairman of Luhansk Regional Military and Civil Administration Heorhiy Tuka said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the combined Russian-separatist forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine 87 times overnight, using banned artillery systems 12 times, mortars 21 times, Grad multiple rocket launchers five times, and rocket-propelled grenade launchers and small arms 65 times.
