The combat continues on the Gorlovka, Donetsk, and Mariupol directions. The hottest spots are Zaytsevo village, the industrial area of Avdeevka town, and Sakhanka township. The tension is growing in the area of Dokuchaevsk town; the Ukrainian army is approaching the town, provoking local clashes. Also, the arrival of Ukrainian military equipment spotted in the area of Volnovakha town.
“Over the past two days, the number of shellings across the front line has increased. The activity of enemy’s drones and snipers is high. In general we may say that the Ukrainian army and Kiev’s mercenaries received an order to destabilize the situation at any price, excluding, for now, the direct and open invasion,” the report states.
Earlier the intelligence of Donetsk People’s Republic spotted the arrival of up to 100 enemy’s infantrymen in the area of Zhovanka village. All soldiers wear black uniform; some of them speak American English. It is possible that the Ukrainian army command redeployed foreign mercenaries to the front-line.
