One Ukrainian soldier wounded amid eight ceasefire violations in JFO area

Russian-led forces continue to ignore the agreements reached as part of the Trilateral Contact Group, firing on the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, according to a morning report issued by the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation on Facebook.

"Over the past 24 hours, on November 5, Russian occupation forces committed eight ceasefire violations, using weapons proscribed by the Minsk agreements in six instances. [...] As a result of hostile actions, one Joint Forces serviceman was wounded. His condition is satisfactory," the report reads.

The Ukrainian military said that the enemy used 120mm mortars near Prychepylivka and Katerynivka and fired 82mm mortars in the direction of Bolotene and Luhanske.

Enemy troops also opened fire from 82mm and 120mm mortars near Krymske. Near Lebedynske, Ukrainian positions came under fire from grenade launchers of various systems, large-caliber machine guns, and other small arms.

"Not far from Talakivka, Russian mercenaries fired grenade launchers of various systems and small arms. In the vicinity of Zolote-4, the invaders used 82mm mortars and automatic grenade launchers," the JFO HQ added.

Ukrainian defenders return fire without using weapons proscribed by the Minsk agreements and forced the enemy to cease shelling. No ceasefire violations by Russian occupation forces were recorded as of 07.00 on November 6.
