The situation in the Donbas conflict was rather calm in the last day, but the combined Russian-separatist forces made several armed provocations, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) wrote on Facebook on Monday.


"At 22:55 Kyiv time, the mercenaries started firing on our positions near the village of Shyrokyne. At 00:35 and 00:37, they started firing small arms on our positions near the village of Novotroitske," the report says.

Adhering to the Minsk agreements, the Ukrainian Armed Forces didn't return fire, the headquarters said.
