November 1, the illegal armed formations of Russian militants conducted eight attacks on the positions of Ukrainian servicemen in Donbas. The HQ of the Joint Forces Operation reported this on Facebook.
'The enemy opened adjusted fire from grenade launchers, large-caliber machine guns and small arms. The most intense activity was observed in the Azov sector. The outposts near Hnutove came under fire three times; in the area of Chermalyk, the occupant forces used 82 mm mortars and heavy machine guns,' the report says.
In the daytime, the mercenaries attacked Stanytsia Luhanska, where the Ukrainian troops did not return fire so as to avoid any risk for the civilian population. In Avdiivka, the commanders decisively ordered to return fire.
None of the Ukrainian fighters were wounded or killed in action. The general situation remains controlled by the Ukrainian military.
