Invaders open fire at Ukrainian positions near Marinka and Vodiane

Russian-occupation forces have violated the ceasefire agreements near the towns of Marinka and Vodiane in Donbas, according to Ukraine’s Defense Ministry spokesperson Yulia Pampukha.

“As of 12:00 on September 21, two violations of the ceasefire by the armed formations of the Russian Federation were recorded on the line of contact. No casualties among our defenders were reported,” Pampukha said at a briefing on Monday, September 21, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

In particular, near Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk), the enemy opened fire from small arms and fired three shots from grenade launchers adapted for placing POM mines. Later, the enemy fired small arms in the area of Vodiane (94km south of Donetsk).

The shots were provocative, so Ukrainian servicepersons did not fire back, Pampukha added.

On September 20, the armed formations of the Russian Federation fired small arms near Novooleksandrivka (65km west of Luhansk). The shots were provocative and did not pose a threat to the lives of Ukrainian soldiers, so they did not fire back.
