A combat clash of the ATO forces with a terrorist sabotage and reconnaissance group took place in Shyrokyne last night from 12 to 0:30 a.m. As a result of the battle five militants were killed. There were no casualties among the Ukrainian military.
At 7:30 a.m. the enemy shelled the ATO positions Shyrokyne using mortars and tanks.
In addition, the Russian air force continues to violate the airspace of Ukraine. Three Russian air force spy planes were spotted over the villages of Sakhanka and Zaiichenko at 6 a.m. today.
Yesterday at 7 p.m., the terrorists shelled the occupied Leninske and Dzerhynske villages using artillery from the neutral territory. Thus, the "DPR" militants are trying to disrupt the peace agreement and discredit the armed forces of Ukraine. The armed forces intelligence reports that the shelling was recorded by six drones of the militants.
At 7:15 p.m. an artillery strike was conducted in the direction of Shyrokyne from the village of Kominternovo.
The militants have reported the provocative shelling to the OSCE monitors who noted these facts in their report. For example, such statement by the "DPR" terrorists has been noted regarding the shelling of Zaiichenko from the territory of Kominternovo yesterday afternoon.
The ATO forces continue to comply with Minsk agreement regarding cease-fire and do not use artillery. All forces are on combat alert and ready to repel any attacks of the enemy.
