Russian mercenaries violate ceasefire in eastern Ukraine three times

Over the past day, July 21, three ceasefire violations by the Russian-occupation troops were recorded in the Joint Forces Operation area in eastern Ukraine.

"In particular, the enemy opened fire from hand-held antitank and under-barrel grenade launchers, as well as small arms near Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk); 82mm mortars and antitank missile systems – outside Pisky (11km north-west of Donetsk); and 120mm mortars – in the area of Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk)," the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

As a result of the explosion of an unknown explosive device, a Ukrainian soldier was wounded. He was promptly given first aid and taken to a medical facility. His condition is satisfactory.

The Ukrainian side of the Joint Control and Coordination Center (JCCC) informed the OSCE SMM about all violations by the Russian-occupation troops, using the established coordination mechanism.

As of 07:00 on July 22, no ceasefire violations were recorded.

Ukrainian servicemen monitor the situation in the JFO area and observe the ceasefire.
