The ceasefire violations are recorded along the entire demarcation line in Donbas, the militants increasingly often use heavy weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements.

This is reported by the ATO Headquarters press center.

"The pro-Russian armed gangs do not stop shelling the ATO positions... The militants launched 24 attacks on the Ukrainian defenders in last day," the report reads.

As noted, the militants grossly violated the ceasefire and were shelling Ukrainian positions near Slavne (25km south-west of Donetsk) for more than an hour using 152mm artillery systems: "In the same direction, the enemy fired at Ukrainian positions outside Novotroitske [32km south of Donetsk] using 120mm mortars, outside Hranitne [57km south of Donetsk] using heavy machine guns, and outside Pavlopol [30 km northeast of Mariupol] using grenade launchers."

"The attacks on Ukrainian strongholds near Avdiyivka [18km north of Donetsk] are ongoing. The militants used 82mm and 120mm mortars, grenade launchers and small arms to fire at ATO troops there," the ATO Headquarters press center reports.
