Since the beginning of the day in the Donbas, Russian militants fired at the positions of the Ukrainian military five times and used weapons of prohibited calibers. The HQ of the JFO reported that on May 8.
In Donetsk region, militants fired at positions near Shyrokyne. They used 82 mm mortars and automatic easel grenade launchers; near Avdyivka, they fired hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms.
In Luhansk region, militants fired at positions near Orikhove and Krymske, using 120 mm mortars and easel anti-tank grenade launchers.
As a result of enemy shelling, three Ukrainian soldiers were injured.
As we reported before, as of now, it is too early to talk about the opening of the entry-exit checkpoints in Donbas, as the deadlines are tied to the lockdown in Ukraine. This was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during a visit to Luhansk region.
According to him, today it is too early to talk about the opening of checkpoints on the demarcation line.
