The situation in the antiterrorist operation (ATO) are has levelled out compared with the previous day, the ATO press centre has said on Facebook. 

The intensity of shooting by pro-Russian militants has dropped significantly. Thirteen cease-fire violations, including eight in the Donetsk sector and five in the Mariupol sector, have been registered since the midnight.

The separatists continue to use weapons used by the Minsk agreements.

At about 13:00 the militants carried out unaimed fire on the ATO strongpoints in Krasnohorivka, releasing four bombs.

They used grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms against the ATO positions in Maryinka, Krasnohorivka, Mayorsk and Pisky. An enemy sniper operated in Maryinka.

"The ATO command hopes that the drop in the militant shooting will allow repairs at the gas pipeline between Maryinka and Krasnohorivka, which was destroyed during the hostilities in 2014-2015, to continue," the HQ said.

Two servicemen were wounded in Donbas today.
