As the Situation maps shows all too clearly, it was yet another heavy night of shelling. Russian forces launched a total of 54 firing attacks, inc use of mortars and artillery. Fighting now increasing in the Luhansk region, with 14 attacks there and 40 in Donetsk.
Ukrainian military report around Russian 80 mortars fired, with Ukraine forces returning fire 30 times. One Ukrainian soldier was wounded and one injured (Trauma).
With shelling increasing and routinely occurring after dark, civilians will again be sleeping in their basements, something which the tens of thousands of men, women and children living on the front line have done for 4 years.
