Ukrainian Military Claims DNR Leader Zakharchenko Visited Kominternovo

The Ukrainian military has reported 24 attacks over the last 24 hours, with 10 occurring between midnight and 18:00 today.

According to this evening's report from the ATO Press Centre, Russian-backed fighters used automatic grenade launchers and 82 mm mortars to shell Peski, northwest of Donetsk, where there were also five attacks with small arms and heavy machine guns. Furthermore, Ukrainian troops in neighbouring Opytnoye came under attack.

To the west of Gorlovka, the report claims that Russian-backed fighters used small arms to fire on Ukrainian positions near Novgorodskoye.

Last night, an earlier report claimed, Ukrainian positions outside Novotroitskoye, on the highway between Donetsk and Mariupol, were attacked with heavy machine guns.

There were also "untargeted" attacks with grenade launchers and small arms on Ukrainian positions near Marinka, Opytnoye, Peski, Novgorodskoye and Troitskoye.

Colonel Andriy Lysenko, military spokesman for the Presidential Administration, announced at noon today that there had been no Ukrainian military casualties over the past 24 hours. 

Meanwhile the pro-separatist Donetsk News Agency reported that the heads of separatist-held frontline towns and districts had told the news site that last night passed without any attacks by Ukrainian forces.
