Ukrainska Pravda reports that Colonel Andriy Lysenko, a military spokesman for the Presidential Administration, has announced that four Ukrainian soldiers have been killed and 15 wounded over the last 24 hours in the Donbass.

Lysenko said that there had been seven recorded cases of residential areas being shelled by Russian-backed forces yesterday.

Novosti Donbassa reports that the Lugansk Military-Civil Administration has announced that a traffic police officer was wounded when the village of Valuyskoye, near Stanitsa Luganskaya, was shelled last night with 122 mm artillery.

According to the Administration, Stanitsa Luganskaya itself was shelled between 21:30 and 1 am. 

Yaroslav Chepurnoy, press officer for the military headquarters in Mariupol, told 0629.com.ua that residential areas of Granitnoye, east of Volnovakha, were shelled three times last night with self-propelled artillery.

This strategically important area of the front line saw significant activity over the last 24 hours.
