Tense ceasefire in Donbas: Ukrainian positions suffered 30 fire raids with different weapons, most of them - with provocative accuracy

Ukrainian Anti-Terrorist Operation HQ say the situation in Donbas is controlled and the "regime of silence" is generally observed. However, the shooting continues: during the last day Russian-controlled forces made 30 fire raids of different intensity on positions of Ukrainian military. Also massive reconnaissance activity was noted. Ukrainian soldiers report 12 UAV flights during the day.

Half of all violations of "regime of silence" where recorded in the Lugansk area, but most of them Russian proxies made using a lighter weapon. Same kind of provocative shooting was noted in Donetsk direction. However, in Mariupol direction 10 violations of ceasefire were noted with the use of heavy and medium mortars. 

Yesterday Ukrainian media reported about four Ukrainian soldiers killed in Donbas. Andriy Lysenko, Ukrainian Presidential Administration spokesman for the Anti-Terrorist Operation, said one soldier was killed and two more injured.
