KIEV, July 20 (Reuters) - Ukrainian positions were fired on twice from across border with Russia overnight, the Ukrainian armed forces said on Sunday.

On the Facebook site for what the government calls its "anti-terrorist operations" which details fighting in eastern Ukraine, the army said mortar attacks from the direction of Russia aimed at Ukrainian posts were recorded just after midnight and again at almost 2 a.m. local time.
