Mayorsk and Zaitseve (near Artemivsk) and Bohdanivka, Shyrokyne (near Mariupol) were shooted by small arms. Horihove in Donetsk region was also attacked.

'In such a way they try to cause the fire from our troops, to accuse Ukraine of violating Minsk agreements and justify, why don't they take away the weapons from the front line, which was determined by Minsk agreements', said in press center.

For the last two weeks, about 90% of attacks were focused on Donetsk region, stated Leonid Matyuhin, press-officer of ATO Headquarter.

'It is impossible to say it exactly: neither it is the distracting maneuver or any other their thoughts, but for the last two weeks, militants focused 90% [attacks] or even more, on Donetsk region'.
