The Ukrainian soldiers' retaliation fire forced the enemy to retreat. The terrorists also shelled the Border Guard Service Department in Stanytsia-Luhanska from mortars. Any Ukrainian soldier was hurt as a result of the attacks.
12 unmanned aerial vehicles were recorded flying within the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
