On June 16, pro-Kremlin mercenaries landed two attacks on Ukrainian positions in Donbas. The enemy used weapons of banned calibers, the HQ of Joint Forces Operation reported.
In the Luhansk region, the enemy used 120 mm mortars to shell Krymske; in Orikhove, they opened fire from small arms, stationary grenade launchers, and heavy machine guns.
The Ukrainian forces returned fire and managed to repel the enemy.
None of the Ukrainian soldiers were wounded or killed in action.
On June 15, an incident took place in Donbas, involving an injury of a civilian resident. Russian mercenaries shelled residential neighborhoods on the outskirts of Avdiivka. The press office of the Joint Forces Operation HQ reported that on June 17.
"Local woman suffered an explosive trauma and the blind fragmentary wound to her lower back in the yard of her own household at about 9 p.m. The citizen was taken to intensive care of Avdiivka central city hospital, where she received medical assistance. Her health conditions are satisfactory," reads the message.
The fragments also damaged the house's roof. The Ukrainian side of the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination found that the distance and the direction where the shooting came from clearly point out to the fact that occupant forces are involved in this crime.
