On July 16, Russian invaders attacked positions of Ukrainian forces in Donbas four times. The press office of the Joint Forces Operation HQ reported that on Facebook.
The enemy used 82 and 120 mm mortars, grenade launchers, anti-tank missile launchers and small arms to attack Ukrainian emplacements in the combat zone.
The illegal armed formations attacked the Ukrainian outposts in Opytne, Novotroitske, the vicinities of Verkhnyotoretske and Krymske.
None of the Ukrainian troops took casualties over the day; the enemy losses are being specified.
Earlier on July 16, two men who previously served with the so-called Donetsk People's Republic surrendered to Ukraine's law enforcers.
