IFV weapons were used by the enemy to fire upon strong points of Ukrainian forces near Luhanske, Butivka mine, and Novotroitske.

"The Kremlin supporters violate the cease-fire day and night. In the first case, they often fire upon their own positions in order to discredit soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the eyes of local people, in the second case they are guided by the notion that there are no OSCE monitoring mission near the demarcation line," the message reads.
