The servicemen of the Joint Forces did not fire back. No combat losses among Ukrainian troops were reported,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.
Since the beginning of the current day, September 3, the ceasefire has been observed in all sectors of the front. No violations have been recorded.
