Vladislav Voloshin, press officer for Ukrainian military operations in what the General Staff dub 'Sector S,' has told the 112 television channel that Russian-backed forces fired on Ukrainian troops near Gorlovka throughout almost all of last night.

Voloshin said the situation in Sector S was deteriorating. Over the last 24 hours, there were eight attacks, most of them conducted with small arms, there was also sniper and automatic grenade launcher fire.

Furthermore, the press officer reported, there had been "provocative" small-arms fire towards Ukrainian positions near Luganskoye and Svetlodarsk throughout almost the whole evening. Voloshin said that the attacks could be connected to enemy training operations.

The Interpreter translates:

"They're trying to work out their tactics... Coupled with this, they're testing the Ukrainian soldiers' nerves, whether they will respond to the provocations staged by the militants."

The ATO Press Centre reported this morning that Ukrainian positions in or around the settlements of Mayorsk, Zaytsevo, Luganskoye and Lozovoye had come under attack.

At around 18:00 and 19:00, a Ukrainian defensive position in Mayorsk came under sniper, small-arms and grenade launcher fire. Small arms were used at 19:00 against positions in Zaytsevo. In Lozovoye, a Ukrainian defensive position was attacked at 18:55, 21:40 and 22:30.

At around 23:00, Russian-backed fighters fired on Ukrainian troops in Luganskoye. Earlier in the evening, 30 rounds from automatic grenade launchers had been fired towards the village, landing around 300 metres from Ukrainian positions.

Meanwhile Ruslan Tkachuk, spokesman for Ukrainian operations in the Lugansk region, reported that there had been one attack in the region last night.

Tkachuk said this morning that Russian-backed fighters fired on a Ukrainian defensive position to the south of separatist-held Sokolniki with an automatic grenade launcher for seven minutes, starting at 22:30. 

The pro-separatist Donetsk News Agency reports no attacks by Ukrainian forces in the Donetsk region last night.
