Ukraine's defense ministry confirms the information that Russian regular army units and the illegal armed formations of terrorists attacked Ukrainian positions seven times over past 24 hours. The attacks included frequent use of the weaponry banned by Minsk agreements. Thus, the enemy again violated the ceasefire offered by the Minsk talks group. 

Mortar strikes were observed near Luhanske, Schastya, Pavlopol, Shyrokyne and Mariinka; 50 mines hit Ukrainian positions. The enemy units also used tank armaments and infantry weaponry.

The militants carried attacks on Ukrainian positions an hour after the armistice officially began in Donbas.
