There were only 7 violations of the ceasefire but heavy casualties today: 2 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in battle, two were wounded and two concussed in the previous reporting period, the ATO [Anti-Terrorist Operation] reported. There were no casualties November 25.

The ATO said that two soldiers who were believed to have been killed yesterday in an 8-hour long battle with Russia-backed militants near Krymskoye in fact returned to their unit safely, InfoResist reported.

On the Lugansk line, Russia-banked militants attacked Novoluganskoye with 82-mm mortars and attacked Novoalekandrovka with grenade-launchers. Small arms were used to fire on Stanitsa Luganskaya and Krymskoye.

On the Donetsk line, militants fired grenade-launchers near Pavlopol, Nevelskoye and the Butovka mine. They also attacked the suburbs of Avdeyevka and snipers were active near Verknyetoretskoye.

Three civilian women were injured by a grenade explosion in Lugansk.
