Today, April 2, the armed formations of the Russian Federation have violated ceasefire four times in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas.

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Maksym Prauta said this at a briefing on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“In the morning, the enemy fired three 82mm mines at the Ukrainian defenders of Pisky (11km north-west of Donetsk) and six 120mm mines at the Joint Forces positions near Pavlopol (25km north-west of Mariupol). The invaders also used mounted and hand-held antitank grenade launchers and heavy machine guns to shell the Ukrainian positions outside Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk),” the spokesman said.

The Ukrainian military took the necessary measures to suppress the activity of the invaders, using weapons not banned under the Minsk agreements.

According to available information, no casualties among the Ukrainian military have been reported, Prauta added.
