On October 17, Russian mercenaries landed 14 attacks on the emplacements of Ukrainian forces in Donbas. That did not result in any casualties among government troops, Joint Forces HQ reported.
The enemy used 82 and 120 mm mortars, grenade launchers and small arms.
Two attacks occurred near Zolote (Luhansk region), which is the area of disengagement of troops and vehicles. The major condition to disengage forces would be the stable bilateral ceasefire for seven days straight.
As we reported earlier, Stepan Kril, the serviceman of the 36th Detached Marines Brigade was killed in action on October 16. Born in Luhansk region, he joined the Ukrainian military in 2015 and fought Russian occupants since then.
