"From 20:20 to 20:50, the enemy was firing on our fortified position near the village of Shyrokyne," the report says.

It is noted that the militants also fired rocket-propelled grenades, heavy machine guns and small arms on the Ukrainian positions near the villages of Maiorske, Luhanske, Pisky, as well as the towns of Avdiyivka and Krasnohorivka.

"Since the enemy was at a considerable distance from our positions and made no attempt to approach the Ukrainian fortified positions, our soldiers didn't open fire in response," the press center said.
