According to the HQ of anti-terrorist operation, Ukrainian outposts near Avdiivka, Maryinka and Krasnohorivka were shelled from 152 and 122 mm artillery systems. Mortars were used to fire at Shyrokyne, Maryinka, Vodyane, Lebedynske, Berezove, Novoselivka II and Opytne, all in Donetsk region.

Avdiivka remains perhaps the hottest spot in the entire combat area; last night, pro-Russian mercenaries opened fire from 120 and 82 mm mortars, RPGs, heavy machineguns and small arms.

In Luhansk region, militants opened chaotic and unadjusted fire, shooting at Ukrainian emplacements near Novoolexandrivka, Stanytsia Luhanska and Novozvanivka.
