The summary reads: "The militants employed weapons 15 times since the beginning of the day mostly near Donetsk and Horlivka. The invaders tried to invite Ukrainian defenders' retaliation near Pisky, Opytne, Avdiivka, Novhorodske, Zaitseve, Maiorsk, Troitske, and Luhanske using small arms, grenade launchers, and high-caliber machine guns.
"The pro-Russian militants committed one accurate shelling from grenade launcher on our positions near Shyrokyne at the approaches to Mariupol. In addition, the ATO forces have decisively disrupted another large-scale provocation by pro-Russian gangs in Kominternove. First, they hurried out equipment and heavy weapons from Kominternove, and then the members of the illegal armed groups themselves left the village in groups. The situation at the approaches to Mariupol is completely controlled by the Ukrainian defenders," the ATO headquarters noted.
