The skirmishes resulted in no casualties in Ukrainian troops. The data is correct as of Monday noon.
In the morning, the enemy opened fire in the area of Mariinka, shooting from small arms. Besides, the militants fired a grenade launcher in that area. Later, the occupants opened fire from small arms to attack the emplacements near Vodyane.
Taking into account the provocative nature of attacks, Ukrainian warriors did not return fire.
Ukraine might need the help of the UN peacekeeping forces in Donbas. However, currently, this topic is not discussed, though it remains on the agenda of the Normandy Four member countries, as they seek ways to solve the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Oleksiy Reznikov, the Vice Prime Minister and Minister for Re-integration of Occupied Territories said so on the air of Pryamy TV, as quoted by RBC-Ukraine news agency.
"At a certain point, the issue of peacekeepers was discussed by our diplomats in the UN Security Council. The discussion concerned the nature of this mission (bringing or maintaining peace) and the actual area of deployment of peacekeepers - all over the territory of Donbas, on the division line, on the border with Russia. There were two opposing points of view, and theoretically, they could agree on something, but they delayed it", the official said.
