There were 13 attacks from Russia-backed separatists in the last day, Gordonua.com reported, noting that the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Organization] says there has been a trend to less intensive fighting since the harvest ceasefire was declared on June 24.
On the Lugansk line, separatists fired 82-mm mortars and small arms at Stanitsa Luganskaya and Krymskoye.
