The number of attacks by Russia-backed militants in eastern Ukraine decreased. Not a single case of artillery use was reported over the last 24 hours, counter-terrorism operation’s HQ said.
Small arms fire was reported in the vicinities of Maryinka, Avdiivka (Donetsk region) and Novoolexandrivka (Luhansk region).
Meanwhile, some units of the Ukrainian troops held tactical drills in the combat area. ‘Special forces units worked on deploying paratroopers from the Mil Mi-8 helicopters, while pilots and recon units improved their air evacuation skills,’ the Facebook post says.
