“The enemy used 120mm and 82mm mortars banned under the Minsk agreements, grenade launchers of different systems, heavy machine guns, and small arms to shell Ukrainian positions. One attack was launched, using an UAV,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

In the zone of action of tactical force “East”, Russian-occupation troops launched attacks from 82mm mortars, mounted antitank grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms on Ukrainian positions near Kamyanka (62km south of Donetsk); grenade launchers of different systems, heavy machine guns, and small arms – outside Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk) and Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk); heavy machine guns and small arms – on the outskirts of Opytne (12km north-west of Donetsk).
