"At the Donetsk direction, which turned out to be the hottest, the enemy fired mortars, IFV weaponry, grenade launchers, and small arms on Ukrainian army positions near Avdiivka, Opytne, Pisky, Luhanske, and Troitske.
"All efforts of pro-Russian mercenaries failed, while ATO forces once again proved they firmly hold their positions. Ukrainian military twice had to open small arms fire in response.
"At the Mariupol direction, Ukrainian troops' strong points near Marinka were hit with grenade launchers. Enemy snipers were also active in this area.
"At the Luhansk direction, no attacks on Ukrainian military have been recorded. In order to improve the state of affairs in government-controlled territory, our troops continue to strengthen their positions, lift mines, and take efforts to identify and neutralize sabotage and reconnaissance groups of the enemy," press center notes.
