Two Ukrainian Army servicemen deceased and another nine sustained injuries in the combat area in Donbas over the past 24 hours. This is due to the aggressive actions of Russian mercenaries, which opened fire 53 times.

The enemy attacked Troitske, Zaitsevo, Luhanske and Novoluhanske, using mortars, greande launchers and machineguns. Hostile troops tried to force Ukrainian servicemen out of their positions in Avdiivka and Mariinka. The government troops returned fire, killing 15 and wounding 13 enemy fighters.
