On September 15, the armed formations of the Russian Federation committed three violations of the agreements reached within the framework of the Trilateral Contact Group on July 22, 2020.

At the same time, the enemy carried out engineering works to equip its positions towards Ukrainian units near Popasna (69km west of Luhansk). In addition, Ukrainian troops spotted an enemy UAV which had crossed the demarcation line near Vodiane (94km south of Donetsk). The drone was suppressed by Ukrainian electronic warfare equipment. This made its further use impossible.
