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

"As of 12:30 on June 30, the armed formations of the Russian Federation violated ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area twice using hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, 120mm mortars, and small arms,” the spokesman said.

Two members of the Joint Forces sustained shrapnel wounds. They were promptly taken to a mobile hospital and received proper medical care.

The enemy's losses are being specified.

The situation in the JFO area remains controlled by the Joint Forces, Prauta added.
