Since the beginning of the day, Russian occupants landed five attacks on Ukrainian positions in Donbas. The Joint Forces Operation HQ reported that on December 15.
Firing from grenade launchers, pro-Kremlin mercenaries opened fire near Avdiivka. In Vodyane and Shumy, they fired grenade launchers and small arms.
"Enemy shooting was unadjusted and did not pose any threat to lives of our warriors, so they did not open fire in return", reads the message.
None of Ukrainian defenders were killed or wounded in combat.
During the day, Ukraine's government forces cleared over five hectares of land from landmines, and passed 73 explosive items for further safe destruction.
The Ukrainian Parliament’s adoption of bill № 4467 on the extension of the "special status" of Donbas will contribute to the peaceful settlement of the situation in certain districts of Donbas. This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG).
"Adoption of the bill as a law will contribute to the peaceful settlement of the situation in separate districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in accordance with political agreements. In this regard, it is suggested to support the adoption of this bill," the statement said.
