At the headquarters of the Operation of the Joint Forces (OOS), the Armed Forces, in turn, said that they had recorded nine shellings of their positions in the Donbas per day.

RIA Novosti, citing a representative of the DPR in the Joint Center for the Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire (JCCC), reported that Ukrainian security forces fired mortars at six settlements of the republic. The interlocutor of the agency noted that during the attacks used grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms. One of the attacks caused a fire in a house near the outskirts of Horlivka. According to preliminary data, there are no casualties among the civilian population.
Earlier on the same day, the DPR NM stated that three militia soldiers were captured during a clash near Horlivka with militants of the Ukrainian nationalist formation Azov. Military republics reported that one of their servicemen died in battle, another was seriously injured.
“It is important to note that after examining the body of our defender, who died during the battle, the absence of one ear was discovered. By the nature of the wound, the experts concluded that it was cut off from an already dead body, ”the department noted. They suggested that the cut off part of the militia’s body became a “trophy” for the sabotage group, confirming the “fact of the murder” of the enemy.
