In the area of responsibility of the operational and tactical group "North", the enemy fired three unaimed shots on Ukrainian positions near Pivdenne (40km north-east of Donetsk). Invaders used 82mm mortars in the morning and grenade launchers of various systems, heavy machine guns and small arms in the evening. Near Katerynivka (64km west of Luhansk), the enemy provoked Ukrainian soldiers, firing tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns, grenade machine guns and small arms.
