Ukrainian troops come under 120mm mortar fire near Krymske

Today, April 28, Russian-backed forces have violated ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas four times. No casualties among Ukrainian troops have been reported.

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Dmytro Hutsuliak said this at a briefing on Tuesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Since the beginning of the current day, as of 12:00, the armed formations of the Russian Federation violated the Minsk agreements by firing 120mm mortars on Ukrainian defenders in the area of Krymske [42km north-west of Luhansk], and 82mm mortars and mounted and hand-held antitank grenade launchers on Ukrainian positions near Popasna (69km west of Luhansk)," Hutsuliak said.

The Ukrainian military gave a decent response to the enemy and suppressed hostile armed activity, the spokesman added.

The Joint Forces units suffered no casualties as a result of the enemy attack.
