Ukrainian soldiers awaiting new provocations, as Russian-backed forces reportedly undergo rotation
Quiet moments before the new attacks. Russian-backed separatist forces attacked Ukrainian positions 18 times during the last 24 hours in Luhansk region. The neighboring Donetsk suffered 16 attacks, in particular the industrial zone of Avdiyivka.
Ten more cases of enemy fire were registered in Mariupol direction.
National Guard fighters report on numerous incidents machine-gun fire, as well as mortar shelling.
The previous night, though relatively still, caused a new wave of suspicion among the Ukrainians. The soldiers suppose the enemy must be undergoing a kind of rotation or preparing new provocations.
