"Over the past day, June 30, pro-Russian terrorists shelled Ukrainian units' positions for 53 times using heavy weapons. Illegal armed gangs do not seize their attempts to provoke our military to violate the Minsk agreements, at the same time looking for vulnerabilities in our defense," the message reads.
In the night, terrorists shelled Ukrainian positions near Pisky and Novhorodske from the occupied Donetsk with 120-mm and 82-mm mortars. Fire bombs were used.
At Artemivsk direction, heavy mortars and grenade launchers fired at Leninske, Kirove, Lozove, Luhanske, and Maiorsk.
In the Luhansk region, 120-mm missiles and grenades were exploding at Ukrainian military positions near Stanytsia Luhanska and Novotoshkivske. Stanytsia Luhanska was also shelled with anti-aircraft mounts.
"The pro-Russian hybrid gangs were the most active near Mariupol. Shyrokyne was shelled several times from various weapons. At midnight, Berdianske was fired at with 122-mm howitzers and portable Grad MLRSes. Thanks to timely and professional reaction of Ukrainian military, pro-Russian terrorist gangs' attempts to find weak spots in our defense remain vain," the message reads.
