Starting from 9 pm till midnight Stanytsia Luhanska was shelled by 82 mm mortars, automatic grenade launchers and automatic weapon. Several houses got hit. Troitske, Popasna and Novotoshkivka were shelled by 122 mm artillery. So far there is no information about wounded or damage.

2 Ukrainian soldiers of 92nd Brigade from Sumy and Kharkiv Regions were wounded at the checkpoint in Shchastya city.

In Novotoshkivske the shelles were exploading near logistics center. This means that terrorists do everything to sabotage peace plan of the President of Ukraine and Minsk Agreements. Terrorists understand that it’s not in their interest as people will be coming to buy products for low prices and people will get all help they need there. Terrorists are afraid that myths of Russian propaganda will start to ruin fast, with the same speed they were created.
