"In particular, about one o'clock in the morning the militants were firing from heavy machine guns near Talakivka, while small arms of the occupants were working near Pavlopil, which is in Mariupol direction. During the shelling, Ukrainian military opened fire in response, "the report said.

"Despite the occasional armed provocations by the enemy, the Ukrainian military continue  to participate in the restoration of the infrastructure of Donbas and help the local population. For example, just in a day in the coastal area our sappers surveyed more than 4 hectares of territories where found over 190 explosives. In the vicinity of Novoluhansk, the army team, together with the representatives of The Halo Trust, are carrying out work on the demining of agricultural land of the local agrarian enterprise," added the headquarters.
