A Russian sniper seriously wounded a serviceman of the Joint Forces. Despite the aid provided, he died during the evacuation," the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

The occupiers opened fire from a heavy machine gun on Ukrainian positions near Novomykhailivka (28km south-west of Donetsk). As a result of the shelling, one of the defenders of Ukraine was killed.

In addition, the enemy opened fire from a hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher near Vodiane in the Sea of Azov area and from an under-barrel grenade launcher in the area of Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk).

Also, the invaders fired grenade launchers of various systems and a heavy machine gun outside Luhanske (59km north-east of Donetsk).
