The situation in the combat area in eastern Ukraine remains stable yet complicated. 67 attacks have occurred since Wednesday morning. About a half of them took place in the vicinities of Mariupol, the government-hold port city in Donetsk region.
Pro-Russian militants fired their heavy 122 mm artillery, grenade launchers, mortars and heavy machineguns. They opened fire from AA guns near Novotroitske and sent armored vehicles to Starohnativka, Talakivka and Maryinka. Enemy snipers fired near Shyrokyne and Talakivka. Ukrainian troops shot at hostile drones that were twice spotted in the area.
Opytne, Luhanske and Nevelske, all near Donetsk, were shelled from heavy artillery and mortars. Near Avdiivka, the mercenaries opened fire from mortars, RPGs and heavy machineguns.
