Militants fired 20 times at Ukrainian positions in Donbas on Friday, killing one serviceman, injuring six more, the press center of Ukraine’s military headquarters reported.
“Another activation of the Russian-occupation groups along the entire contact line in the conflict zone took place last night. Until 6 p.m., the enemy unsuccessfully tried to test almost all the fire weapons of our defenses in the Avdiyivka area, then in the evening, the tension shifted to the Luhansk sector,” the headquarters said in a statement posted on their Facebook page on Saturday morning.
In the area of Schastia and Novotoshkivske militants several times used mortars and grenade launchers to shell Ukrainians’ positions. In addition, at night, they shelled the Ukrainian fortifications in the vicinity of Krymske for almost half an hour using 120-mm mortars.
