Russian-backed militants continue intensive shelling of Ukrainian army positions near the town of Avdiivka in Donetsk regions, reports the press centre of Anti-Terrorist Operation.
"The illegal military groups do not stop their shelling of Ukrainian troops in the combat zone. Today we recorded eight cases of enemy's violating the ceasefire," the press centre said.
The most aggressive militant attacks were observed in the direction of Donetsk, including the city suburbs. The Russian-backed militants used small arms, grenade launchers, heavy-calibre machine guns, and 82mm-calibre mortars.
The Ukrainian positions also came under attack near the villages of Maryinka and Luhanske.
