Never-ending shelling of Avdiivka industrial zone and Mariupol sector

Ukraine's Armed Forces suffer more losses

Russia's hybrid military force operating in eastern Ukraine continues snubbing Minsk peace agreements, Ukrainian military report.

Out of 37 militant attacks, 24 were recorded in the Mariupol sector. There, the militants remain twice as active as in the other two sectors put together, according to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesperson Oleksandr Motuzianyk.

"The Ukrainian military had to return fire," he said.

In the Donetsk sector, the town of Avdiivka remains the hotspot. Yesterday two continuous powerful shellings occurred there. The intensive militant fire lasted non-stop for about eight hours, Motuzianyk said.

The ongoing hostilities resulted in more casualties for the Ukrainian Armed Forces: one serviceman was killed and another one wounded.
