“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,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

Over the past day, three servicemen of the Joint Forces were killed, one was wounded and another one injured in the enemy shelling. The Joint Forces command extended deep condolences to the relatives and friends of the fallen Ukrainian heroes.

Today, the Russian armed formations have already violated ceasefire once. No casualties among Ukrainian troops have been reported.

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