According to ATO HQ, despite the ceasefire since 08:00 a.m., the Russian occupational troops keep on shelling violating the Minsk agreements.

Iin a period from 08:25 to 08:45 a.m. militants shelled the Ukrainian positions with 120 mm mortars near Avdiivka industrial area. 12:15 p.m. occupants fired on the Ukrainian positions using tanks near Pisky, Butivka mine, and Avdiivka industrial zone. Ukrainian units observe the ceasefire.

These actions of militants violate the ceasefire and prevent repairing demolished infrastructure.

Wounded soldiers have been directed to Dnipro city military hospital, providing health care and treatment to injured Ukrainian servicemen.

Since the beginning of this year the medical staff has provided care to more than 50 wounded servicemen as hospital head says.

Medical teams have evacuated more than 20 soldiers since the escalation of the conflict. Then the patients were transported to military hospitals in Kyiv, Lviv and Odesa.

Dnipro military hospital has essential drugs, medical equipment and supplies.
