Occupiers launch two attacks on Ukrainian troops

Over the past day, January 14, the Russian-occupation troops launched two attacks, using weapons prohibited under the Minsk agreements once, in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area in eastern Ukraine.

“Outside Vodiane (94km south of Donetsk), Russian mercenaries opened fire from 82mm mortars and tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns. Near Prychepylivka (50km north-west of Luhansk), the enemy fired grenade machine guns and small arms,” the press center of JFO Headquarters posted on Facebook.
