This morning, the Ukrainian military claimed that Russian-backed fighters had conducted attacks across the front line over the last 24 hours, using 82 mm mortars to shell Krasnogorovka, west of Donetsk, as well as Leninskoye and Luganskoye near Gorlovka.

According to the ATO Press Centre, the settlements of Peski, Avdeyevka, Novgorodskoye and Novoselovka, all near Donetsk, were attacked with grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms.

In the Gorlovka area, the Ukrainians report attacks on Mayorsk, Zaytsevo, Kirovoye and Luganskoye.

At around 18:00, a group of up to 10 Russian-backed fighters reportedly attacked a Ukrainian defensive position but were repelled. 

To the south, the village of Starognatovka, east of Volnovakha, came under heavy machine gun and small arms fire.

On the coast, Colonel Andriy Lysenko, military spokesman for the Presidential Administration, reported attacks near Shirokino.

In the Lugansk region, the ATO Press Centre reports a grenade launcher attack on Tryokhizbenka. 

Colonel Lysenko announced at noon today that two Ukrainian soldiers had been wounded in combat and another two wounded by tripwire mines.

The self-declared Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) claimed meanwhile that Ukrainian troops had violated the ceasefire 15 times over the last 24 hours, shelling the outskirts of Donetsk and Gorlovka with heavy mortars and tanks.
