славянск

Militants continue trying to break out of the encirclement near the town of Sloviansk.

Thus, as a result of another attack on the ATO positions with the use of small arms and rocket-propelled grenades, two Ukrainian soldiers were wounded, wrote ATO Speaker Vladyslav Seleznev, Сensor.NET reports.

On the other checkpoint an attempt to break through the encirclement was made by a group of 10 militants. However, it was prevented by the Ukrainian military.

In Luhansk, gunmen opened fire on the airfield. They arrived in 8 trucks mounted with mortars and heavy machine guns and the gunmen began firing on the positions of the Ukrainian troops.

Forces of a separate unit repelled the militant attack, with no losses among the Ukrainian law enforcement.

Last night the militants bombarded the positions of Ukrainian troops in the area of Kramatorsk airport for three hours. The army destroyed the militants' checkpoint, 2 mortar installations and combat mobility vehicle, and about 40 mercenaries.

"To ensure the safety of residents of the ATO area, the participants of the anti-terrorist operations are forming an appropriate network of protective structures," said Seleznev.
