No let up in shells being fired, but a welcome drop in casualties.
Wed – 1 Ukrainian soldier reported wounded, with 44 mortar and artillery shells fired by Russia’s forces. Thurs – No casualties and 143 shells fired. In addition to heavy weapon usage, anti-tank rockets, grenade launchers and heavy/light arms are typically being fired.
