    Russian ground attacks and heavy shelling's kept up the entire night and into the early morning today.....

    06:22 #Donetsk #Proletarskyi @DoneckiiPatriot very far salvos are audible

    77 hostile attacks upon Ukr troops over last day. Avdiivka remains hottest spot. Intense attacks in Mariupol sector - ATO press center


    Mariupol is becoming a critical point ...if taken then it lends itself to the Russian military pushing all the way to Odessa and linking Crimea to their Moldavian enclave....and giving their "New Russia" a major harbor and cutting the Ukraine from the sea.

    06:25 #Donetsk #Schetinina @DoneckiiPatriot Now closer single salvos. 06:26 and again sounds like starts

    A serious battle has been under here for over 14 hours on and off.....now strong Russian attacks again....

    Yasynuvata 6:42AM
    "Ongoing battle! Shooting with everything they got!"

    Sounds like battle at Promka, periodically tank firing.

    The entire front line was under attack for most of yesterday and into this morning.....this Russian slow stepped ground offensive is picking up in both intensity and attacks numbers...STILL not a single comment by any western leader...ie Obama, Merkel or Hollande.

    Makiivka 6:50AM
    "Very loud, sounds like at Butovka mine."

    Northwest, heavy canonade.

    Russia has been demanding that the US pressure the Ukrainians to hold elections in their occupied zones under Minsk 2 and from all the major Russian attacks and heavy artillery next to the forward line Russia itself is in FULL violation of Minsk 2 and has never implemented a single point in Minsk 2 YET literally demands elections to give their occupied zone a "semi legal status".....

    Poroshenko: Current situation in Donbas makes holding local elections there impossible

    06:45 #Donetsk @rjpthjuljytwr [fb]

    Russian info war paranoia hard at work........

    A presenter on Vesti FM just called opposition activists traitors & said West is plotting regime change in RUS. Does he really believe that?

    Putin does.......

    UAF is indicating that this battle area is now quiet....confirmation coming via locals as well.......Russian loses are said to be high.......

    09:10 #Yasynuvata @GirkinGirkin [vk?] #Melnytsia: sunny and windy. Quiet

    BUT not so in other locations along the front line......

    10:00 #Makiivka @tov_sobakin [ok.ru]
    #Gvardeyka, mil comissariat: noisy
    #Vostochnyi2:rumbles strongly
    #Pastukhivka: hearing it loud&powerful
