 Debaltseve remains the hottest spot. All enemy attacks repulsed - ATO press center

The Ukrainian troops continue to counter the illegal armed groups. The enemy continues to shell Ukrainian positions from Grads, artillery, and mortars despite the peace talks that are underway in Minsk.

Censor.NET reports citing the ATO press center.

The summary reads: "The Debaltseve salient remains the hottest spot in the East of Ukraine. The terrorists shelled the city from Grads and artillery 14 times today - life supporting facilities and houses were destroyed as a result.

"Furthermore, the criminals unsuccessfully tried to storm our positions near Novotroitske village. Two attempts to storm our positions near Chornukhyne, Kamianka, and Debaltseve turned to be unsuccessful as well.

"The militants also became active at Mariupol direction. They shelled Chermalyk village twice during the day.

"Our detachments have successfully repulsed all enemy attacks without losing their positions. In addition, the activity of the enemy on the information front should be also noted. The terrorists-controlled media began to disseminate information about another shelling of Kramatorsk in the morning. Subsequently, the Russian warplanes were reported flying over government-controlled territory. Some websites of the so-called Novorossia once again reported about the encirclement of the Ukrainian troops at the Debaltseve direction in the evening. The anti-terror operation press center stresses that all these reports are false and created to spread panic and distrust within the Ukrainian troops," the report reads.
