Combined Russian-separatist forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine 11 times in the past 24 hours – eight times in the Donetsk sector and thrice in the Mariupol sector – according to the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation headquarters.


A shaky truce has been established in the Luhansk sector.

In the Donetsk sector, the enemy fired tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns at the villages of Troyitske and Nevelske. The militants also fired automatic mounted grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms on defenders of the town of Avdiyivka. In addition, they opened fire from small arms at the villages of Luhanske and Verkhniotoretske.
