Pro-Russian illegal armed groups shelled ATO positions 79 times over the previous 24 hours, ATO press center informed on Facebook.
“Militants attacked Ukrainian positions 16 times from 120 mm and 82 mm mortars near Pisky, Mayorsk, Zaitseve, Luhanske and Kamenky”, - it is said in the report of ATO press center.
The hottest spot of military activity remains Avdiivka, where militants shelled Ukrainian positions 19 times from mortars.
Russia-backed forces also attacked Ukrainian positions near Stanitsa Luhanska, Nevelske, Opytne, Hnutove, Zaitseve and Maryinka.
“Pro-Russian militants violate ceasefire regime both during the day and at night. During the day, militants attack their own positions in order to discredit Ukrainian Armed Forces in the eyes of civilians. At night, they attack ATO positions, considering that representatives of OSCE SMM are nowhere near the contact line at the time. In order to maintain positions Ukrainian Armed Forces opened fire 8 times against pro-Russian militants”, - ATO press center reported.
