Yuriy Lelyavsky, press officer of 10th brigade: "You see, there's a piece of tank left. I guess there must have been a kind of rotation, for they are extremely active."

Five Ukrainian soldiers are reported wounded during the last night. In the meantime Russian-backed separatist forces have got a new portion of Kremlin aid masked under the humanitarian convoy. Ukrainian soldiers say their enemy does not have a single portion of the so called officer's dignity.

The neighbouring Maryinka is just five kilometres away from Krasnogorivka. Recently nearly 50 Russian-backed militants have attempted to approach the town, attacking simultaneously from three different sides. One of the fighters of "Donbas" battalion got wounded. Now he is being treated in the city of Dnipro.

Ukrainian military command say the enemy tries to approach their positions even from the rear side. Now the National Guard fighters know - if the streets are crowded with the locals, there is no danger. But when the town becomes empty, it is a clear signal of an upcoming attack.
