Over the last couple of days, we’ve seen Russia’s forces reducing their provocation firing. This is welcome news, but as ever, there is still a whole lot of Russian bullets, notably small and heavy machine gun fire whizzing about. Confirming Ukrainian military reports, the OSCE reported Russian firing on Gas repair workers at the village of Marinka – 1 worker and 1 soldier were hit. Also confirmed the hitting of the school kindergarten and civilian houses in the village of Chermalyk.
