"Yesterday, May 5, the Russian Federation's armed formations shelled Ukrainian defenders' positions in the area of responsibility of the Pivnich [North] operational tactical group. Holding the defense, the Ukrainian military resolutely stopped the enemy's attack, using available weapons," the group's press service wrote on Facebook on May 6.

"Acting professionally, the Ukrainian defenders destroyed the enemy's firing position," it said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia's hybrid military forces on May 5 mounted 15 attacks on Ukrainian army positions in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, with two Ukrainian soldiers reported as wounded in action.
