Pro-Russian militants breached the ceasefire in Donbas 35 times since Sunday morning, ATO Press Service reported.

Since 6 p.m yesterday, militants 13 times opened fire at Ukrainian positions.

The enemy fired at emplacements of government troops in Shyrokyne with large-caliber machineguns and grenade launchers.

Mercenaries used small arms to shoot at Ukrainian outpost near Novoselivka, Donetsk region. An enemy sniper fired there as well. A group of militants attempted to break through the defenses at Novoselivka-Druga village. After a 30-minute-long fight, the enemy retreated.

Russia-backed mercenaries opened unadjusted fire at Pisky, Avdiivka, Novhorodske and Troitske. However, not a single shot was reported after midnight in the entire combat zone.

Previously, negotiators of the Minsk Trilateral Contact Group agreed that the full ceasefire must be observed in Donbas since December 23. However, the militants continued to violate the truce, shooting at Ukrainian emplacements.
