This is reported by the ATO Headquarters press center.
“The enemy violated the ceasefire in ATO area six times over the past day. As a result of the enemy shelling, one Ukrainian soldier was killed, three soldiers were wounded and two were injured,” the statement reads.
Despite the agreements reached in Minsk on New Year and Christmas truce, Russian-backed troops continued to violate the ceasefire and launched attacks on the Armed Forces of Ukraine, using prohibited mortars and artillery.
In Luhansk direction, illegal armed formations used 82mm mortars and heavy machine guns to fire at Ukrainian positions near Luhanske (59km north-east of Donetsk) and Svitlodarsk (55km north-west of Donetsk). ATO troops came under small arms fire near Stanytsia Luhanska (16km north-east of Luhansk). In addition, the terrorists used a UAV near Luhanske. As known, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles is prohibited by the Minsk agreements.
In other key areas, the ceasefire violations were not recorded.
