“The enemy used 152mm artillery systems, 82mm mortars banned under the Minsk agreements, grenade launchers of different systems, heavy machine guns, sniping weapons, small arms, and unguided missiles to shell Ukrainian positions. Ukrainian defenders effectively engaged duty fire weapons to repel the invaders,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

In the zone of action of tactical force “North”, the enemy used hand-held antitank grenade launchers and small arms to shell defenders of Mayorske (45km north of Donetsk), Novozvanivka (70km west of Luhansk), and Khutir Vilnyi.

One Ukrainian serviceman was wounded in the enemy shelling over the past day.

Today, the Russian armed formations have not opened fire yet.
