On May 29, the armed formations of the Russian Federation violated ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas 13 times.

“The enemy used 120mm and 82mm mortars banned under the Minsk agreements, grenade launchers of different systems, heavy machine guns, and small arms to shell Ukrainian positions. Ukrainian defenders stopped the enemy shelling by decisive actions and effective use of duty fire weapons,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

In the zone of action of tactical force “East”, Russian-occupation troops used heavy machine guns and small arms to shell Ukrainian positions near Bohdanivka (41km south-west of Donetsk) and Nevelske (18km north-west of Donetsk); grenade launchers of different systems – outside Berezove (31km south-west of Donetsk) and Novotroitske (36km south-west of Donetsk); 82mm mortars, hand-held antitank grenade launchers, and heavy machine guns – in the area of Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk); grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms – near Lebedynske (16km east of Mariupol) and Starohnativka (51km south of Donetsk).

In the zone of action of tactical force “North”, the enemy fired 120mm mortars, grenade launchers of different systems, and small arms on Ukrainian troops near Luhanske (59km north-east of Donetsk); 82mm mortars – outside Hladosove (51km north-east of Donetsk) and Novhorodske (35km north of Donetsk); grenade launchers of different systems and heavy machine guns – on the outskirts of Krymske (42km north-west of Luhansk).

One Ukrainian soldier was wounded over the past day.

In addition, the Russian armed formations deliberately shelled the disengagement area No.2 “Zolote” from tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns.

Today, the Russian-occupation forces have opened fire from grenade launchers of different systems and heavy machine guns near Avdiivka.
