On October 26, Russia-backed forces attacked 20 times and Ukrainian forces opened fire 9 times, the Anti-Terrorist Operation [ATO] reported. One Ukrainian soldier was injured.

On the Maritime line, militants attacked Gnutovo with grenade-launchers and small arms and Vodoyanoye and Pavlopol with 82-mm mortars.

On the Donetsk like, the Avdeyevka industrial zone was attacked with heavy machine guns and small arms, and Peski was fired on with grenade-launchers.

On the Lugansk line, militants attacked Stanitsa Luganskaya.

The Ukrainian JCCC protested against the use of 120-mm mortars to attack Vodyanoye, near Mariupol.

The Ukrainian JCCC also protested about a disruptive action on the part of the Russia-backed forces which they said endangered civilian lives. The Novotroitskoye checkpoint is known to close at 18:30, but at 18:00, militants allowed through 166 civilian automobiles. Due to poor weather conditions, Ukrainian border guards had to hurry the civilians through and did not finish work until 19:50. 

The separatist news service reported that a fighter for the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" (DNR) was killed in battle. 

The Tomashevsky Bridge over the Seversky Donetsk river, destroyed in 2014 from separatist shelling, has been re-built, rejoining Rubezhnoye and Lisichansk.
