Since Tuesday morning, Russian mercenaries have used mostly small arms and heavy machineguns to attack Ukrainian positions in Donbas.

Certain tension remains in the industrial area of Avdiivka and near Zaitsevo, Donetsk region. The enemy fired RPGs, small arms and heavy machineguns. Large-caliber machinegun fire was reported in Vodyane, Lebedynske and Talakivka (Donetsk region).

In Novotroitske, the enemy did not open fire but used sabotage and reconnaissance groups to watch the activity of Ukrainian troops.
