"Over the past 24 hours, Russian occupation forces have continued to grossly violate the Minsk agreements, using weapons that should have been withdrawn from the contact line to certain distances long ago. The aggressor was especially active in conducting provocations during the hours of darkness," the headquarters said in a report posted on its Facebook page on Saturday.
In the Luhansk sector, gunmen used 122mm artillery systems, mortars and entire arsenal of small arms, including grenade launchers near Luhanske.

From the temporarily occupied Pervomaisk, the enemy fired at the outskirts of Pidlisne from 152mm artillery. The aftermath of the damage is being clarified," the press center said.
Militants used 120mm mortars and infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) weapons to fire at Ukrainian positions near Troitske. Militants also provoked Ukrainian defenders by firing from grenade launchers of various types and small arms from Novooleksandrivka, Novhorodske and Zaitseve.
