No sign of ceasefire in eastern Ukraine
Ukrainian army has reported more casualties, it had suffered in the past 24 hours in the Donbas warzone.
Oleksandr Motuzianyk, Presidential Administration spokesman on ATO related issues, reported that no one was killed, but seven Ukrainian soldiers were wounded as Russian-backed militants launched dozens of attacks.
According to Motuzianyk, Ukraine's servicemen try to hold the line as the enemy mounts round-the-clock attacks near Avdiivka in Donetsk region.
The situation was also extremely tense in the village of Zaitseve, where combined Russian-separatist forces fired 35 shells of 122mm caliber on the Ukrainian positions.
The attacks were also recorded near Horlivka and Donetsk airport.
In Mariupol area the militants shelled Krasnohorivka and Shyrokyne using banned heavy weapons.
The so-called ‘silence regime' had to be in place in Donbas since April, as it had been agreed by the representatives of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk. However, the truce never came as sides of the conflict playing the blame game.
