The Ukrainian military claims that Russian-backed fighters conducted 15 attacks yesterday in the Donbass, despite the concentration of forces for their Victory Day parades in Donetsk and Lugansk.

According to this morning's ATO Press Center report, Ukrainian positions in Avdeyevka were attacked yesterday evening with grenade launchers, small arms and anti-aircraft artillery.

To the east, near Gorlovka, Russian-backed fighters used grenade launchers and BMP infantry fighting vehicle cannons to fire on Ukrainian forces outside Luganskoye.

The Lugansk Regional Military-Civil Administration reported today that there had been two rounds of attacks last night, near Novoaleksandrovka, where Ukrainian troops came under small-arms fire, and Zolotoye, where Russian-backed forces used heavy machine guns.

In the south of the Donetsk region, the ATO Press Center reported that Russian-backed fighters had used grenade launchers, anti-tank missiles and BMP cannons to fire on Ukrainian positions near Starognatovka, west of the River Kalmius, and Shirokino, on the Azov coast.

In addition, the military reported six attacks between midnight and 6 am today.

According to the report, grenade launchers were used in attacks on Avdeyevka, while BMPs fired on troops near Starognatovka. To the west of Donetsk, sniper fire was reported in the Maryinka area.

Meanwhile the pro-separatist Donetsk News Agency reports, citing a source in the security forces of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic (DNR), that Ukrainian forces last night shelled the village of Belaya Kamenka, east of Starognatovka, with 120 mm mortars.
