"The situation in the ATO area remains tense. The terrorists driven out from a number of areas as a result of the ATO offensive are trying to conduct a counterattack with the support of the Russian Army units," he said.
According to Tymchuk, the terrorists are actively fighting near Amvrosiivka: here artillery and Grad systems shelled the positions of the ATO forces at night from the Russian territory.
"Twice the ATO forces were shelled near Ilinka (the Donetsk region). Once from the Russian side by MLRS Grad and once by artillery. The militants used Grad to fire at the ATO forces in the territory of the Luhansk Airport and near the village of Kamyshnoe (the Luhansk region). Near Berezovo the terrorists used Grad and near Avdiivka - mortars," he added.
