Last 24 hours in ATO zone, same as previous day, were tense. The enemy fired in all directions along the contact line. As usual most of provocative shelling happened near Donetsk. Terrorists fired in the direction of Opytne, Mariinka, Pisky, Nevelske, Novhorodske and Avdiivka using high caliber machine guns, grenade launchers and small fire arms.

Mercenaries shelled Mayorske, Zaitseve, Stanytia Luhanska, Hranitne and Shyrokyne using mortars, weapon of BMP armored vehicles. grenade launchers and small fire arms. In total from 18:00 last evening and till 6 in the morning there 37 shelling.

As for the previous 12 hours, ATO Press Center didn’t report the number of cease-fire violations in the East of Ukraine, so it’s impossible to calculate the total amount of Russian terrorists attacks in the last 24 hour. Obviously that number dramatically increased comparing to the last few days.

Yesterday National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine reported that in the last 24 hours no Ukrainian soldier was killed and only one was wounded during military actions. Also 2 soldiers of Armed Forces of Ukraine were killed by a landmine near Krymske village in Lugansk Region. See report here http://mediarnbo.org

Lugansk Regional Administration also reported that yesterday on November 22 one Ukrainian soldier was killed and another one was wounded by a land mine near Malynove village when they were moving on a vehicle.

This village is located on the way to checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska, hundreds of vehicles go that direction to pick up their relatives and friends. There could be more victims if civilian vehicle got on that mine.
