The Mariupol Defence Headquarters reports that Ukrainian positions in Shirokino were attacked 7 times yesterday.

The report claims that there were no attacks earlier in the day due to a visit by OSCE monitors.

However, after the departure of the monitors, there were six attacks between 16:30 and 19:30. Amongst the weapons used were heavily artillery which should have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreement, including both 152 mm self-propelled guns and 120 mm mortars.

According to the report, after the self-propelled artillery opened fire at 17:00, Ukrainian troops returned fire with 82 mm mortars on the Russian-backed fighters' firing positions.

The Headquarters claimed (translated by The Interpreter):

At 17:30 the enemy proposed a ceasefire. The Ukrainian side accepted this proposal. But as soon as 18:00, the enemy began shelling ATO positions again, violating the prior agreement themselves.

The night passed quietly, without attacks.
