Invaders launch 14 attacks in Donbas, 11 Ukrainian soldiers wounded and injured

Over the past day, February 26, the armed formations of the Russian Federation violated the ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas 14 times. Eight servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were wounded, and three more soldiers were injured in combat.

In particular, the enemy opened fire from 120mm mortars, grenade launchers of various systems and small arms on Ukrainian positions near Vodiane in the Sea of Azov area. As a result of the shelling, six servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine sustained shrapnel wounds, and three more soldiers were injured in combat.

The invaders fired 120mm and 82mm mortars, heavy machine guns and small arms in the area of Pisky (11km north-west of Donetsk); and automatic easel and hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and sniper’s weapons – near Luhanske (59km north-east of Donetsk). Moreover, the enemy carried out remote mining of the territory near the Ukrainian positions outside Luhanske with POM-2 mines.

In the area of Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk) and Lebedynske (16km east of Mariupol), the Russian-occupation troops opened aimed fire from small arms. As a result of the enemy shelling, one Ukrainian defender was wounded.

In addition, the invaders fired an automatic easel grenade launcher in the area of Kamyanka (62km south of Donetsk); small arms – near Pivdenne (40km north-east of Donetsk); and tripod-mounted man-portable antitank gun – outside Svitlodarsk (57km north-east of Donetsk).

Ukrainian defenders gave an adequate response to the enemy shelling.

Not far from Nevelske (18km north-west of Donetsk), a Joint Forces serviceman received shrapnel wounds in an unknown explosive device blast.

All soldiers who were wounded and injured over the past day have been promptly taken to a medical facility, where they are provided with the necessary medical assistance.

With the aim of an immediate ceasefire, the Ukrainian side of the Joint Control and Coordination Center (JCCC) repeatedly sent requests for a truce regime through the OSCE SMM. However, all of them were ignored by the ORDLO mercenaries.

Today, February 27, one ceasefire violation by the enemy was recorded outside Zaitseve (62km north-east of Donetsk). The OSCE representatives were informed about all ceasefire violations through the Ukrainian side of the JCCC.
