Disgraceful ceasefire: Militants continue shelling Ukrainian positions in Donbas

Ukrainian army reports more losses

There has been mortar fire over the town of Shyrokyne over the past 24 hours. Despite the cease-fire, militants in Donbas have been shelling more than 20 times overnight. They fired Avdiivka industrial zone with machine guns and grenade launchers. Russian-backed forces shelled with mortars in the area of Talakivka and Shyrokyne.

In the village of Bezhynove, which is located close to the withdrawal line, the Ukrainian military discovered a storage of weapons, which included TNT, anti-tank mines, grenades, and munitions of different calibre, including armour-piercing and sniper rounds.

As Ukrainian soldiers say, the arms were produced in Russia and designated for Russian subversive forces.

Even with the truce officially in place, the past day brought more losses for the Ukrainian army. One soldier was killed in a mine blast, and three more wounded by militant mortar fire.
