Ukrainian soldier killed in JFO area

On Friday, November 19, a Ukrainian soldier was killed in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in eastern Ukraine.

“Today, Russian-occupation troops violated the ceasefire four times, including three times with the use of the weapons banned under the Minsk agreements,” the press center of the JFO Headquarters posted on Facebook.

Towards Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk), the occupiers launched two attacks, using 12mm artillery and 82mm mortars.

Outside Lopaskine (24km north-west of Luhansk), the enemy fired 82mm mortars.

In the area of Prychepylivka (50km north-west of Luhansk), the enemy forces opened fire from small arms.

One Ukrainian serviceman received a fatal wound in the enemy shelling.

The command and personnel of the Joint Forces offer their sincere condolences to the family and friends of the hero who died for Ukraine.

Without resorting to weapons prohibited under the Minsk agreements, Ukrainian defenders returned fire and forced the enemy to cease shelling.
