The ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation] reported there were just three areas where fighting continued: the Avdeyevka industrial zone, where Russia-backed fighters used heavy machine guns, grenade-launchers and small arms and also later 82-mm mortars; the Butovka Mine where small arms were used; and Maryinka on the Maritime line, where grenade-launchers and 82-mm mortar-launchers were fired.

All was quiet on the Lugansk line.
Meanwhile, DAN-News.Info, the news service of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic,” said a DNR soldier, age 29 was killed by Ukrainian shelling with 82-mm mortar-launchers near Yasinovataya.
DAN-News.info also reported firing on Spartak, the Volvo Center to the north of Donetsk, Kurtaya Balka and Vasilyevka in Yasinovatsky District.
