There are reports of shelling both north of Donetsk and north of Lugansk today. 

Over the last several days the fighting has slowed or stopped across many fronts, but fighting has continued north of Donetsk. In Pisky, near Donetsk Airport, fighting has been especially fierce. A Ukrainian photojournalist, Sergei Nikolayev, was killed there on Saturday, according to the Anadolu Agency:

Nikolayev, 43, was reportedly injured in the mortar attack and died in the hospital, the daily said in a statement. "He was an outstanding photographer and fully committed to his job," the statement added.

The daily’s Chief Editor Olga Guk expressed condolences to Nikolayev's family and relatives.

Ukrainian army spokesman Andriy Lysenko said that they did not have details about the incident, but acknowledged that there was shelling in Pisky on Saturday. “The threat of an offensive remains," Lysenko said.

According to the Ukrainian army, three soldiers were injured in the past 24 hours in eastern Ukraine. The army had earlier announced a drop in the attacks from pro-Russian separatists.
