Illegal armed groups violated the ceasefire seven times in Donbas conflict area from midnight to 18:00 on November 24. Ukrainian military opened fire in response two times. This was reported by Ukraine’s Army HQ press center on Facebook page.
It is noted that the situation in the occupied Donbas is under control of the Ukrainian Army. However, despite the general decrease in the number of shelling, the ceasefire regime is not observed.
"During the day, in Luhansk area, the enemy several times attacked Ukrainian positions in Novoluhanske from IFV weaponry, grenade launchers and small arms. Luhansk defenders were under the fire from light infantry weapons in Svitlodarsk bulge vicinity, "the report says.
In Donetsk area, according to the headquarters, militants were shelling in Hnutove from grenade launchers and from large-caliber machine guns and small arms near Verkhnyotoretske.
"The enemy used infantry weapons in the vicinity of Mariinka, and in this area our defenders were fired at by a sniper," the report says.
On the approaches to Kamianka, the militants shelled from grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms.
As it was reported earlier Donald Tusk, the President of the Council of Europe claimed that the armed Donbas Conflict in Ukraine is the direct consequence of the invasion and aggression of Russia and assured that the EU will never recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea. He claimed this at the press conference on the result of 'Eastern Partnership' summit.
