Fighting has picked up in the Donbas again, with three Ukrainian soldiers being killed and four injured over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian military reported on Feb. 16.

International monitors with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe recorded about 80 explosions in the last 24 hours. Most of those occurred near the Ukraine-controlled town of Avdiyivka, and in the Russian-controlled areas of Yasynuvata and Donetsk airport.

At least 35 attacks were launched by Russian-backed forces over 24 hours in the Donetsk Oblast villages of Pisky, Kamyanka and Zaitseve. A sniper attacked Ukrainian army positions in the Svitlodarsk area near Novoluhanske and Zaitseve, according to Ukrainian authorities. Meanwhile, Russian-backed fighters attacked with large-caliber machine guns, grenade launchers and mortars in the village of Krymske, Lobacheve and Novooleksandrivka.
