Slight reduction in Russian shelling from yesterday. Last 24 hours, Ukrainian army reported 38 firing attacks, mainly in the Donetsk region. Town of Avdiivka, village of Pisky and the area outside the southern coastal city of Mariupol, suffering the worst effects.

Tank fire was again used, along with heavy mortar fire. No Ukrainian casualties were reported, but civilians properties have been hit. Just in case anyone is wondering, Ukrainian forces do return fire.

It’s also reported that Russian forces have again sealed off an area with checkpoints and searched civilian properties. This locking down of areas and villages is something they’ve done before and can only add to the sense of fear for those living in the occupied territories.
