That’s according to a morning update by the Joint Forces Operation Headquarters.
"Near Katerynivka, Russian mercenaries fired at Ukrainian positions with grenade launchers of various systems and small arms. The occupiers opened fire using 120-mm and 82-mm mortars at Kamyanka,” the update said.
Ukrainian defenders returned fire without using weapons proscribed by the Minsk accords and forced the enemy to cease shelling.
"There are no casualties among the Joint Forces as a result of the enemy's actions ... As of 7:00 on January 8, we recorded no new ceasefire violations by the Russian occupation forces," the military added.
Joint Forces continue to monitor the situation, remaining ready to deter and repel Russia’s armed aggression.
