Illegal armed forces in occupied Donbas violated the truce 19 times over the past 24 hours. Almost for every second shelling, Ukrainian forces responded with fire. As a result of the hostilities, one Ukrainian defender was injured, the press center of Ukraine’s Army HQ reported in Facebook.

"If in the daytime the enemy almost adhered to the regime of silence, after 18:00 their activity increased significantly," the headquarters note.

The situation was most tense in Donetsk area.
