The Armed Forces of the DPR claimed the Ukrainian side spread a message about the shelling the village Artemovo, located near Gorlovka. The Armed Forces of the DPR declare they strictly adhere to the cease-fire regime. The enemy is forced to disseminate reports about shelling that do not correspond to reality, and they sometimes provoke firing on settlements located on the territory under Ukrainian control. The leader of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko laid flowers to the graves of the fallen commanders Motorola and Givi during the opening ceremony of the Heroes Memorial of the DPR. Zakharchenko stressed the inestimable contribution of the legendary battalion commanders to the construction of the republic.
