MP Excluded From Poroshenko's Party After Hoisting Yatsenyuk Aloft In Rada

The Ukrainian military claimed this morning that Russian-backed fighters had opened fire around 40 times overnight, following 25 attacks between 6:00 and 18:00 yesterday.

According to the ATO Press Centre, Russian-backed fighters used grenade launchers, machine guns and small arms in attacks on Opytnoye, Peski, Novgorodskoye and Krasngorovka. The military claims that several dozen 120 and 82 mm mortar shells fell on the outskirts of this last settlement.

Kiev also reports 120 mm mortars were used near Zaytsevo, north of Gorlovka.

The Donetsk Regional Administration has announced that a civilian man was killed yesterday in this same area, near a checkpoint outside Mayorsk.

Later today, Colonel Oleksandr Motuzyanyk, a military spokesman for the Presidential Administration, told reporters that there had been no Ukrainian military casualties within the last 24 hours.

The 'defence ministry' of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) claims meanwhile that Ukrainian forces shelled separatist-held territory six times within the last 24 hours.

According to the DNR, Ukrainian troops used mortars, infantry fighting vehicles and tanks in their attacks on north northern outskirts of Donetsk and the village of Zheleznaya Balka, south of Gorlovka.
