 Ukrainian soldiers fortify positions near Novhorodske in view of constant attacks. VIDEO

Well-fortified positions allow the soldiers of the 24th Aidar Separate Assault Battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to take attacks of the Russian militants in their stride.

Censor.NET reports citing Channel 5.

The battalion positions were assaulted more than 50 times over the last week. Most of the attacks were committed with small arms, grenade launchers, and IFV guns at night.

"We are constantly under fire at night so we are highly motivated to dig trenches. Our fortifications are now capable to protect even from heavy mortars," one of Ukrainian soldiers said.
