"At least two Urahan multiple rocket launchers and two D-30 howitzers were destroyed and put out of action together with four trucks carrying ammunition. There are casualties among the enemy gunners," he said.
According to him, the parties conduct intensive counter-battery warfare using multiple rocket launchers among others north-west and west of Horlivka.
"The buildup of the enemy artillery group is noted acting as a part of Horlivka formation, which is trying to conduct regular fire strikes on the positions of Ukrainian troops in the direction of Dzerzhynsk. After suffering losses in the counter-battery combat with the Ukrainian artillery this artillery group was replenished - the arrival of six gun cannon artillery battery consisting of 152-mm Msta-B howitzers was registered in the area," Tymchuk added.
