Militants of the illegal armed groups in Donbas shelled Ukrainian ATO positions 8 times over the night, reported the ATO press-center speaker Leonid Matyukhin on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“The night was uneasy. Militants used mortar launchers, not heavy arms. Thus, Mariinka, Vodyane and Shyrokyne were shelled from small arms in Mariupol direction, Pavlopil and Novozvanivka in Luhans direction were also shelled. 82 mm mortar launchers were used in the morning near Zaitseve village,” Matyukhin reported.
“Our soldiers shelled back from grenade launchers tonight and yesterday,” he added.
He also informed that search for the missing military men are underway.
“The search is underway. First the information appeared that they were found, now we have another information. For now we can’t say anything new, no one has any precise information, the search is underway. In my understanding, we will have the concrete information by the end of the day or tomorrow,” noted Matyukhin.
As it was reported earlier, Militants shelled Ukrainian positions 46 times during the past day and night.
