Russian-backed militants launched five attacks on positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) area in Donbas over the past day.

In Luhansk direction, illegal armed formations opened fire from grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms on the Ukrainian strongholds near Luhanske (59km north-east of Donetsk) and Novhorodske (34km north of Donetsk).

In Donetsk direction, flagrantly violating the Minsk accords, the enemy used 120mm and 82mm mortars to fire at the Ukrainian positions near Pavlopol (30 km northeast of Mariupol), BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles and 82mm mortars – near Vodiane (16km north-west of Donetsk), and mortars and small arms - outside Avdiivka (18km north of Donetsk).

As a result of the enemy attacks, two Ukrainian servicemen were wounded. They were taken to a military mobile hospital and received the necessary amount of medical aid.
