Over the past day, March 26, the armed formations of the Russian Federation violated ceasefire in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in Donbas four times.

“In the area of responsibility of the operational and tactical group “North”, the occupiers opened fire from 82mm mortars, automatic easel grenade launchers and heavy machine guns on Ukrainian positions near Shumy (41km north of Donetsk); heavy machine guns, hand-held antitank grenade launchers and small arms – in the area of Mayorske (45km north of Donetsk),” the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

As a result of the shelling, four servicemen of the Joint Forces were killed and two were wounded. The wounded soldiers were promptly given first aid and taken to a hospital.

The Joint Forces Command expresses its sincere and deep condolences to the families and friends of the fallen soldiers.

Ukrainian soldiers returned fire in response to the enemy's shelling.

In the area of responsibility of the operational and tactical group “East”, Russian-occupation troops used small arms to shell Ukrainian troops outside Verkhniotoretske (22km north-east of Donetsk).

The OSCE representatives were informed about the actions of the armed formations of the Russian Federation through the Ukrainian side of the Joint Control and Coordination Center (JCCC). Also, the Russian mercenaries rudely ignored the Ukrainian side's requests for ceasefire, continuing to shell the positions of our defenders.

As of 07:00 on March 27, one ceasefire violation was recorded. In particular, the armed formations of the Russian Federation opened fire from grenade launchers of various systems near Slavne (26km south-west of Donetsk). No losses have been reported.

Ukrainian military continue to monitor the situation in the JFO area.
