At night, the militants also shelled the airfield in Kramatorsk, the checkpoints of Ukrainian military near Sloviansk, and the villages of Makariv, Avdeyevka, and Karachun hill. The military fired back.

“Therefore, the gangs of terrorists continue to unilaterally break President Poroshenko’s peace plan to regulate the situation in Eastern Ukraine,” the report says.

On June 20, President Poroshenko announced temporary ceasefire to all units of the Ukrainian Army, National Guard and Border Service. The anti-terrorist operation troops were only allowed to open fire as a protection measure.
