Censor.NET reports citing the ATO press center.
The report reads: "At around 1 a.m. mercenaries fired Grad rocket systems on the Ukrainian troops positions near Vodiane, Opytne, Pisky, Novoselivka. From midnight to 6 p.m. militants used mortars to cover Krasnohorivka and Marinka.
"Today, near Mariupol, occupants used 120-mm mortars and 122-mm artillery two times to fire at our strong points in Starohnativka. About 2 p.m. the same village was sprayed with 152-mm artillery. Also, in violation of the Minsk agreements, at 3:50 a.m. terrorists used Grad rocket systems near the village of Bohdanivka.
"In the Artemivsk direction, at about 3 a.m. our troops clashed with an enemy sabotage and reconnaissance group. Eight militants engaged in fight with our soldiers at a checkpoint using small arms. Due to professionalism of Ukrainian military the enemy retreated.
"At the same time, according to current information, local population on the temporarily uncontrolled territory of Ukraine demonstrates growing dissatisfaction with occupants. People finally realized that in fact mercenaries brought destruction, discord, and criminals to the Donbas. Therefore, adult men refuse to reinforce the ranks of the criminal army. Seeing this, leaders of the so-called "DPR" set up "Voluntary Youth Brigade." With the help of young people militants intend to gather actual information, disperse spontaneous rallies, and arrest those dissatisfied."
