Ukrainian forces tried to attack the DPR army’s positions on the shore of the Azov sea with two combatant crafts, reports the DPR Operational Command’s Vice-Commander, Eduard Basurin.

“Yesterday, following the order of the Ukrainian 73rd naval special warfare centre’s Commander, the 1st rank captain, Eduard Shevchenko, two combatant crafts entered the DPR territorial waters in Bezymennoye locality’s area, to undertake the reconnaissance and provocations firing at our positions, thus conducting the fighting reconnaissance. We had to open the return fire with small arms and antitank guided weapons, which resulted in serious damage of one of the combatant crafts which was dragged away today,” said Basurin.

According to the Vice-Commander, the failed attack resulted in the death of two soldiers and three soldiers being wounded.
