Russian proxies cease systematic shelling of ATO forces
Since the combined Russian-separatist forces have ceased their systematic shelling of the Ukrainian army positions, the situation in the Donbas conflict zone has remained stable on Wednesday, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) wrote on Facebook on Thursday.
However, from 18:00 Kyiv time to midnight on September 3, some armed provocations were recorded along the demarcation line, the press center said.
"At about 19:00 Kyiv time and 22:00, the militants started firing small arms on the Ukrainian fortified positions near the town of Maryinka. At 21:40 Kyiv time, the mercenaries used a heavy machine gun against our units in the town of Krasnohorivka from the village of Staromykhailivka," the report says.
In general, the Kremlin-backed militants attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine 10 times overnight.
"From midnight to 06:00 on September 3, the occupiers violated the ceasefire once. At about 01:00 Kyiv time, they started firing a grenade launcher on ATO forces in the village of Krymske in Luhansk region from the village of Sokilnyky," the press center said.
