Russian proxies attack ATO forces nine times overnight, early morning silent
The combined Russian-separatist forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine nine times overnight, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) wrote on Facebook on Tuesday.
"The situation was stable in the Donbas conflict zone in the evening of September 15. The pro-Russian gangs continued random shelling of Ukrainian positions. In general, those were chaotic and provocative attacks," the report says.
At about 19:00 Kyiv time, the enemy sniper started firing on a fortified position of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near the village of Krymske in Luhansk region.
In the direction of Artemivsk, at about 21:00 and 23:00 Kyiv time, the occupiers started firing small arms on ATO forces in the village of Rozsadky.
"From midnight to 06:00 on September 16, the Kremlin-backed mercenaries were not using weapons along the demarcation line," the press center said.
As reported earlier, on August 26, during the meeting of the Tripartite Liaison Group in Minsk, the parties agreed on sustainable ceasefire in the first week of September.
Since that day, the terrorists have significantly reduced the number of provocations.
