In the suburbs of Pisky and Shyrokyne, the enemy opened fire using small arms, and near Avdiivka and Kamenka – grenade launchers of various types.

Near Mayorske, Russian-led armed groups launched grenades, near the village of Zolote-3, the enemy opened fire using automatic easel grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms.

Ukraine's Armed Forces returned fire, the report says.

Earlier the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Ruslan Khomchak denied the statements spread by Russia about allegedly "Ukraine's preparation for an attack on Donbas."

"Messages spread by Russia about allegedly "Ukraine's preparation for an attack on Donbas" are untrue and have signs of a targeted disinformation campaign aimed at discrediting Ukraine in the international arena, sowing panic among the population of temporarily occupied territories and changing the information agenda for promoting the Kremlin's geostrategic interests," he said.
