In the Mariupol sector, the militants opened fire from small arms, machine guns and grenade launchers near the town of Maryinka, and the villages of Vodiane, Shyrokyne, Talakivka and Pavlopil. A sniper was also active in Shyrokyne. Additionally; the militants fired from infantry fighting vehicles on Talakivka.
In the Donetsk sector, the occupiers fired 82mm and 120mm mortars and opened fire from small arms, machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades on the town of Avdiyivka. A sniper was working in Avdiyivka as well.
