The militants also fired 82mm and 120mm mortars on the Ukrainian fortified positions near the town of Avdiyivka, the villages of Pisky, Opytne, Zaitseve, Mayorsk and Pervomaiske, as well as Butivka coal mine and Zenit [the latter is the location of a former Ukrainian air defense missile battalion, which is a few kilometers from the village of Spartak in Donetsk region].

The enemy also fired an anti-aircraft gun on the Ukrainian positions in Opytne, and infantry fighting vehicles shelled the town of Krasnohorivka.
