Kyiv, 11 March 2015 – Over the night on 10-11 March Russia-backed separatists in Eastern Ukraine violated the silence regime 10 times, according to Anatoliy Stelmakh, ATO Staff spokesman.
Despite the fact that from 8pm till 6am the intensity of the enemy’s fire at the ATO forces has decreased, the enemy continues concentrating its main activity at the Donetsk direction. “Pisky, Opytne and Avdiivka were fired upon from mortars and automatic grenade launchers over the night. From 21.00 till 23.00 terrorists fired at Pisky town with a 120-mm mortar. The enemy used small arms twice at the Mariupol direction near Chermalyk and Shyrokyne and once near Sokilnyky in Luhansk region,” said the ATO Staff spokesman.
Anatoliy Stelmakh also noted that Ukrainian forces are not responding to the enemy’s provocations and open fire only in case of a direct threat to life. Ukrainian servicemen are also reinforcing the defense along the entire delimitation line.
