The Russian troops and rebels continue staging provocations against the Ukrainian army by opening small arms fire and sending terrorist groups beyond the touchline, expert Dmytro Tymchuk writes in Facebook Oct. 16.
Near Holmivske, they opened fire on the no-man’s land using grenade launchers and thus provoking a response from Ukrainians. Following this they fired small arms fire.
The same provocation happened to the south of Avdijyvka.
The Ukrainian servicemen didn’t return the fire.
Several groups of enemy infantry were noticed close to the no-man’s land near Maryinka, Berezove and Chermalyky.
Sporadic fire using 82-mm mortars was observed near Novozvanivka, the expert says.
