Ukraine reports 1 KIA, 6 enemy attacks in past 24 hours – ATO HQ
Russia's hybrid military forces have attacked Ukrainian army positions in Donbas six times in the past 24 hours, with one Ukrainian soldier reported as killed in action as a result of mortar shelling, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation headquarters has reported.
"Russian occupation troops breached Minsk accords early afternoon. The enemy continued to use mortars of various calibers, blatantly violating the Minsk agreements, [firing] not only on the positions of the Ukrainian defenders but also toward an occupied front-line settlement," the press center said.
In the Luhansk sector, the militants fired 120mm mortars on the Ukrainian fortified positions near the village of Troyitske. The aggressor also repeatedly opened fire from 120mm and 82mm mortars, as well as grenade launchers on the fortified positions near the village of Luhanske.
In the Donetsk sector, the invaders used 82mm mortars on the Ukrainian positions near the village of Novotroyitske. "Here, to provocatively accuse the ATO forces, they alternately led mortar fire on our fortified positions and on the infrastructure of the temporarily-occupied town of Dokuchayevsk," the report says.
