29 cases of the truce being broken were recorded in the Luhansk zone, as has appeared to be consistently the case in the townships of Novooleksandrivka, Krymske, Bohuslavske, Novozvanivka and Popasna. Militants fired mortars, grenade launchers and small arms in this sector.

23 provocations have happened as well in the Mariupol area with the separatists firing 152 and 122 caliber artillery.

9 cases of shelling have taken place in the Donetsk areas with the very same type of weapons.
