Pro-Russian militants have increased the number of attacks in eastern-Ukraine, often aiming for the living neighborhoods. Dmytro Hutsulyak, the spokesman of Ukraine's defense ministry said this at a briefing in Kyiv.

'Lately, we've been observing an increased fire intensity, as Russian occupant forces, actively sponsored by Russia, shell the civilian-inhabited localities along the division line. It became especially obvious when the counter-terrorism operation changed its name to the joint forces operation. But they definitely fail,'he said.    

As is known, the counter-terrorism operation (ATO) in Ukraine officially ended on April 30, being rebranded as the joint forces operation (JFO). This is foreseen in the law of Ukraine 'On reintegration of Donbas'.
