The situation continues to be volatile in and around Donetsk. ATO press center informs on attacks carried out against Pisky, Krasnohorivka, Starohnativka, Chemarlyk, Vodiane, Opytne, Novoselivka, Zaitseve, Marinka, and Avdiivka. Speaking about Avdiivka, 5 thousand out of 35 thousand people are currently settling the town. Donetsk People’s Republic-controlled Donetsk airport also faced militants’ assaults.
In Krymske, Bolotne, Syva, Luhansk region, were heard explosions of mortars, grenade launchers and small arms. As a result of the fire, one Ukrainian soldier was wounded.
The total amount of attacks against Ukrainian posts and populated areas for the last 24 hours amounted to 87. As stated the head of Luhansk regional administration Heorhiy Tuka, last days the militants had been firing with prohibited weapons (multiple rocket launchers BM-21 “Grad”, grenade launchers, small arms, and tanks), and now are just waiting for the reaction of the international community and Ukraine.
Prosecutor General of Ukraine plans to establish a regional military prosecutor's office in the ATO zone. Hence the full capacity of security investigators and military prosecutors would effectively conduct offensive and investigative actions.
