"Today, December 28, one ceasefire violation has been recorded. In the suburbs of Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk), the enemy opened fire from an under-barrel grenade launcher. The shots were unaimed so Ukrainian soldiers did not fire back," the press center of the JFO Headquarters informs.

All seven violations were committed in the area of ​​responsibility of the operational and tactical group "East".
