Russian-led forces launch nine attacks in Donbas

On July 24, armed formations of the Russian Federation violated the ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas nine times.

“The enemy used 82mm and 120mm mortars banned under the Minsk agreements, grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, and small arms to attack Ukrainian positions,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

In the zone of action of tactical force “East”, Russian-occupation troops fired 120mm and 82mm mortars, grenade launchers of different systems and heavy machine guns on Ukrainian defenders near Starohnativka (51km south of Donetsk); grenade launchers of different systems, heavy machine guns, and small arms – outside Lebedynske (16km east of Mariupol), Hnutove (20km north-east of Mariupol), Pyshchevyk (25km north-east of Mariupol), and Shyrokyne (20km east of Mariupol).

In the zone of action of tactical force “North”, the enemy used hand-held antitank grenade launchers and small arms to shell Ukrainian positions near Novotoshkivske and Khutir Vilnyi.

The Joint Forces units responded timely to enemy's armed provocations and fired back, forcing the occupiers to refrain from continuing their aggressive actions. According to intelligence data, Ukrainian soldiers wounded one invader last night.

No casualties among Ukrainian troops were reported over the past day.

Today, the Russian armed formations have already violated ceasefire twice.

The situation in the JFO area remains controlled.
