"At the Debaltseve direction, the enemy moved the artillery closer to the contact line: self-propelled guns are deployed just 8-10 km from the line, which allows dense shelling of Ukrainian army positions. The craters are not more than one meter away from each other.
"The new theater of war is unfolding in Zaitseve and the Svitlodarsk salient. Heavy shelling is registered here every night. Last night, over 50 152-mm shells hit Zaitseve, Troitske. The enemy also employed 120-mm mortars.
"In the vicinity of Avdiivka, three soldiers tripped an antitank mine today. The guys have survived and hospitalized, their condition being critical. At the Avdiivka direction, militants every night strike our positions with prohibited mortars and tanks.
"Good news: our soldiers hit an attacking enemy tank. A relative lull was registered in other sectors of the front," the report notes.
