Seven ceasefire violations recorded in Donbas. Ukrainian soldier wounded

Over the past day, March 5, seven ceasefire violations were recorded in the area of responsibility of the operational and tactical group "East" of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas.

“The armed formations of the Russian Federation opened unaimed fire from under-barrel grenade launcher and small arms near Pisky (11km north-west of Donetsk); hand-held antitank grenade launchers and heavy machine guns – outside Shyrokyne (20km east of Mariupol),” the press center of the JFO Headquarters informs.

As reported, the occupiers opened aimed fire from hand-held antitank grenade launcher near Vodiane (94km south of Donetsk); small arms – in the direction towards Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk); tripod-mounted man-portable antitank gun – on Ukrainian positions outside Talakivka (17km north-east of Mariupol).

“In the suburbs of Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk), the Russian occupation forces used sniping weapons to fire aimed shots on Ukrainian positions. As a result, one Ukrainian soldier received a gunshot wound. The serviceman was promptly taken to a medical facility, where he was provided with the necessary medical care. The wounded soldier is in serious condition," the statement reads.

The OSCE representatives were informed about the gross violations committed by the armed formations of the Russian Federation and its mercenaries through the Ukrainian side of the Joint Control and Coordination Center (JCCC).

"With a view to establishing an immediate ceasefire, the JCCC sent three requests through the OSCE SMM. However, representatives of the Russian occupation forces continue to show an unwillingness to comply with the previously reached agreements," the JFO Headquarters informed.

Today, March 6, the situation in the JFO area remains controlled by Ukrainian troops.

No ceasefire violations have been recorded.
