Over the last 24 hours, Russian mercenaries have increased the intensity of attacks on Ukrainian positions. Dmytro Hutsulyak, the speaker of Ukraine's defence ministry said that at a briefing in Kyiv on Sunday.
According to him, the militants used RPGs and small arms to attack Novhorodske and Malynove (both in Luhansk region). 82 mm mines hit Katerynivka (Luhansk region). Mortar attacks were observed in Bohdanivka (Donetsk region).
In Vodyane, mercenaries opened fire from heavy machineguns, which resulted in one Ukrainian serviceman sustaining a severe combat wound.
Ukraine's government troops did not return fire.
