"The enemy used 82mm mortars banned under the Minsk agreements, weapons on infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers of different systems, heavy machine guns and other small arms to fire on positions of the Joint Forces," the press center of the JFO Headquarters reports.

Seven Ukrainian soldiers were wounded over the past day.
While Ukraine is trying to reach peace by diplomatic means, Russian invaders violate any agreements, the JFO Headquarters underscores. Yesterday, the Ukrainian side asked to observe ceasefire twice at one of the sites to provide care to the wounded. The armed formations of the Russian Federation gave their consent but continued to fire on Ukrainian positions.
Today, the armed formations of the Russian Federation and its mercenaries have not opened fire yet. No casualties among Ukrainian troops have been reported.
