On December 6, the Ukrainian army Day, the intensity of the fighting has not reduced. Shelling of Donetsk continued. Clashes in the area of Debaltsevo and at Gorlovka - Dzerzhinsk intensified. On the territory of the LPR militia attempted to break through to the Ukrainian positions to the east from the settlement Stanitsa Luganskaya in Valuiskoye. Because of the superiority of the AFU in the number of tanks at the site, the militia did not achieve the determined success, but nevertheless, the militias were able to advance and consolidate in some areas, pushing AFU back. In turn, the AFU actively throw reinforcements to this sector of the front.
