Militants launched 15 attacks on Ukrainian troops in Donbas in last day

The situation in the Joint Forces Operation area in eastern Ukraine remained tense over the past day. Russian-occupation troops continue to flagrantly violate the Minsk accords. 

This is reported by the Joint Forces Operation Headquarters press center.

"The military operations continued along the entire demarcation line. The enemy used prohibited weapons 15 times outside Krymske (42.5km north-west of Luhansk), Popasna (90 km north-west of Luhansk), Novotoshkivske (53km north-west of Luhansk), Luhanske (59km north-east of Donetsk), Avdiivka (18km north of Donetsk), Shyrokyne (20km east of Mariupol). The units of the Joint Forces suppressed the enemy's attacks and prevented the advance of the occupation forces into our territory," the report reads.

Russian-occupation troops continue to fire 122 mm artillery on Zaitseve (67km north-north-east of Donetsk). Militants destroy the residential buildings with the artillery shelling, roughly violating the norms of the international humanitarian law. A total of 27 shellbursts were recorded in Zaitseve in last day.

Two Ukrainian servicemen were wounded in fighting over the past day. According to the intelligence, one militant was killed, another five were wounded.
