"Russian militants 11 times fired on our positions: five times at the Donetsk and six times at the Mariupol directions.

"Militants four times delivered fire on strongholds near Novotroitske, using various types of grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms. At 8 a.m., a subversive-reconnaissance group of up to 10 people came close to Ukrainian positions and hit them with automatic grenade launchers and small arms.
