Ukrainian soldier wounded amid eight ceasefire violations in eastern Ukraine

Russian occupation forces violated the ceasefire regime in eastern Ukraine seven times on February 11 and once early on February 12, according to a morning report released by the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation.

"Near Marinka, Russian mercenaries used an unmanned aerial vehicle to drop a VOG-17 grenade. In the direction of Nevelske, the enemy fired twice using small arms. The occupiers fired twice at the positions of Ukrainian defenders using man-portable anti-tank grenade launchers, automatic grenade launchers and small arms," the statement said.

Near Shyrokyne, Russian mercenaries fired man-portable anti-tank grenade launchers. Not far from Vodiane, Russian armed formations opened fire using small arms.

One Ukrainian Joint Forces serviceman was wounded as a result of enemy shelling. The soldier was hospitalized. His condition is satisfactory.

Ukrainian defenders returned fire without using weapons banned by the Minsk agreements and forced the enemy to cease shelling.

"As of 07:00, Russian occupation forces committed one ceasefire violation. Near Pisky, the occupiers fired from anti-tank and automatic grenade launchers. There are no casualties among Joint Forces troops due to enemy actions," the statement said.

The Ukrainian army is monitoring the situation and continuing to repel and deter Russia's armed aggression.
