Occupants increased number of attacks in the Donetsk sector yesterday, but only once used mortars near Avdiyivka. The Avdiyivka industrial zone is the “hottest point” of the sector. Five Ukrainian soldiers were wounded there last night.

The enemy resumed its activity in the area of the Svitlodarsk water-storage reservoir, repeatedly opening fire from grenade launchers and small arms. The difficult situation was yesterday in the northern outskirts of occupied Horlovka – in Zaytseve and Mayorsk.

In the Mariupol sector, the situation remains troubled, there were 9 attacks on the AO forces. Militants made several attacks with 82mm mortars in Mar’inka. Further south, near Vodiane and Shyrokyne, the enemy fired 120mm mortars on positions of the Ukrainian army. At the same time the Russian-terrorist forces opened fire with infantry armored vehicles (BMP) in Vodiane.

On the past day of hostilities, one Ukrainian soldier was killed shelling with grenade launchers near the Svitlodarsk water-storage reservoir. Seven soldiers were wounded, five of which – in Avdiyivka and two – in the Mariupol sector.
