Russian-occupation forces open aimed fire at Ukrainian positions near Shumy

The Russian-occupation forces have opened aimed fire at Ukrainian positions near the village of Shumy in Donetsk region, where a meeting of representatives of the OSCE and the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) was to take place.

"Today, at 14:15, the Russian-occupation troops opened aimed fire from small arms at Ukrainian positions near Shumy. The shelling was directed at the site where a meeting of the JCCC and OSCE representatives was to take place," the JFO press center reported on Facebook.

The JFO Headquarters emphasized that such actions indicate that the enemy deliberately and purposefully violates the agreements and openly provokes the Ukrainian side. Ukraine, according to the headquarters, once again demonstrates its sincere desire to establish peace, but the enemy deliberately thwarts any attempts.

At the same time, according to the command of the Joint Forces, thanks to the efficiency of the Ukrainian intelligence officers, the actions of the armed formations of the Russian Federation were predicted in advance, so they quickly managed to protect both the servicemen of the Joint Forces and the JCCC and OSCE representatives.

As Ukrinform reported, the Trilateral Contact Group at a meeting on September 9 agreed to make a joint visit to the area of Shumy with the participation of an OSCE representative, as well as representatives of certain areas of Donetsk region (ORDO).

On September 10, the head of the Ukrainian delegation to the TCG, Leonid Kravchuk, addressed a letter to the OSCE representative in the Trilateral Contact Group with a request to postpone today's meeting near the village of Shumy. The document states that the Russian side and its invited representatives from ORDO put forward new requirements that were not discussed during an extraordinary video conference of the Trilateral Contact Group on September 9.
