The press center stressed: "The militants have resorted to armed provocations using grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms on approaches to Shchastia and to the east of the Zhelobok village at the Luhansk direction. They also shelled Krymske village from 120-mm mortars twice.

"The enemy provoked the ATO forces using firearms near Lozove village at the Artemivsk direction. The attacks were committed by the enemy snipers and the shelling from 120-mm mortars was conducted there as well.

"The activity of the illegal armed groups in the vicinity of Mariupol has decreased. However, the bandits have fired at our positions in Shyrokyne from small arms and automatic grenade launchers.

In turn, the Ukrainian soldiers strictly adhere to the terms of the Minsk agreements remaining unprovoked and use weapons only to suppress the armed aggression of the enemy."
