The Russian occupation forces continued to violate peace agreements, firing on ATO forces mainly from small arms and grenade launchers. In turn, the Ukrainian military fired back, promptly assessing the degree of threat.

From 18:00 to midnight, the largest number of attacks was recorded in the Luhansk sector. The enemy used small arms and grenade launchers against the Ukrainian fortified positions near the villages of Stanytsia Luhanska, Troyitske and Krymske. The village of Novozvanivka came under fire from infantry fighting vehicles and 82mm mortars twice. And at about 23:00 Kyiv time, an enemy 120mm mortar started working near the village of Novotoshkivske.
