Today, January 1, the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation] reported that the Russian-backed militants violated the cease-fire 24 times with firearms and heavy machine guns, reported, citing the ATO's Facebook page.

There was firing on Peski, Opytnoye, near the Donetsk Airport, and Troitskoye on the border between the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. There was also firing on positions at the Gorlovka-Svetlodarsk bulge and Novgorodskoye and Luganskoye. The ATO said Ukrainian forces did not return fire.

But Dan-info, the news service of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" (DNR) claimed, however, that Ukrainian forces had violated the "quiet regimen" 11 times, firing from 82--mm mortars, tanks and BMPs in Staromikhalovka, Kominternovo and the area of the Donetsk Airport. One DNR fighter was killed due to numerous shrapnel wounds, said Dan-info. Five homes were said to be damaged in Kominternovo.

There was also report of an Aidar volunteer killed not yet reported by the Ukrainian military.

In Kiev, police opened fire on a man who shot at a police patrol, reported.. Officers had responded to a complaint of a disturbance at the Troyeshchina housing complex. While they were speaking with witnesses, an armed man shot at them. Law-enforcers fired warning shots then shot the gunman in the leg and stomach. His name was not provided.
