Five ceasefire violations recorded in eastern Ukraine

Over the past day, the occupiers launched five attacks on positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) area.

“Over the past day, January 25, the Russian-occupation troops violated the ceasefire five times,” the JFO Headquarters press center informs.

Towards Avdiivka (17km north of Donetsk), the armed formations of the Russian Federation opened fire from grenade machine guns and tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns.

Outside Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk), the enemy fired hand-held antitank grenade launchers and small arms.

Near Shyrokyne (100km south of Donetsk), the enemy opened fire from heavy machine guns and small arms.

On the outskirts of Pyshchevyk (25km north-east of Mariupol), Russian mercenaries used an UAV to drop VOG-17 grenades.

Two Ukrainian servicemen were wounded in the enemy shelling.

Ukrainian troops returned fire, not resorting to weapons banned under the Minsk agreements, and made the enemy to cease fire.

As of 07:00, January 26, no ceasefire violations by the Russian-occupation forces were recorded.
