Russian-occupation forces have violated ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas four times today.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry spokesman Oleksandr Motuzianyk said this at a briefing on Wednesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Since the beginning of the day, April 22, the Russian-led forces have violated ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area four times. The enemy used hand-held and automatic grenade launchers to shell Ukrainian positions near Orikhove (57km north-west of Luhansk), Bohdanivka (41km south-west of Donetsk), Lebedynske (16km east of Mariupol) and Shyrokyne (20km east of Mariupol),” the spokesman said.

At the same time, he noted that the invaders had used 82mm mortars to fire at the Ukrainian troops in the area of Shyrokyne.

The Ukrainian military gave a decent response to the enemy and thwarted hostile armed activity with light infantry weapons.

No casualties among the Ukrainian military have been reported, the spokesman added.
