"Two houses were significantly damaged by explosions of shells: the roof of one house was destroyed, the other house's outer wall and roof were damaged," the report said.

No civilian casualties have been reported.

"The invaders have once again openly demonstrated their cynical attitude to the life and health of the civilian population and once again confirmed they explicitly disregard the Minsk agreements and international humanitarian law," the report said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia-led forces mounted three attacks on Ukrainian positions near Kamianka on May 23. In the morning, they used hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, whereas in the afternoon and in the evening, they opened fire from 122mm artillery systems – 32 rounds in total.
