"The terrorists opened provocative fire in the direction of the Ukrainian troops' positions in the vicinity of Pisky thrice between 11:15 p.m. and 11:50 p.m. using small arms. Russian-terrorist mercenaries shelled Ukrainian servicemen near Avdiivka at midnight using automatic grenade launchers."
It is noted that the Ukrainian military had not opened fire in response observing the Minsk agreements.
The army continues to aid those impacted by the war.
"Officers of the civil-military cooperation together with volunteers distributed food packages, hygiene products, baby food, and stationery for schoolchildren in Zaitseve village not far from "DPR"-controlled Horlivka. Almost 100 families have received the aid," the press center added.
