Russian-backed militants continued to conduct provocative attacks against Ukrainian Armed Forces, stated the speaker of ATO press center Leonid Matyukhin.
In particular, government positions on the Donetsk direction were shelled with the grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms. The rebels have fired Opytne, Pisky, Mariinka, Avdiivka, Troitske. As for Luhansk direction, Ukrainian positions near Novotoshkivske and Orikhovo-Donetske were attacked with the small arms.
"At 22:00 a clash between Ukrainian soldiers and hostile sabotage and reconnaissance group of about 20 people occured near Orikhovo-Donetske. The enemy faced a rebuff and traditionally ran from the battlefield," said the spokesman.
By the end of November, the parties to the Donbas conflict should share all the information concerning demining. This decision has been made on the basis of yesterday's meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas conflict mediation. Recalling, Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk drew attention to the revitalization process of the exchange of hostages.
