Russia's hybrid military forces mounted six attacks on Ukrainian army positions in Donbas on May 1, with two Ukrainian soldiers reported as wounded in action.
"Russian-occupation forces fired at positions of JF units using 120mm and 82mm mortars, tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns, heavy machine guns, and small arms," the press center of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said in an evening update on Wednesday.
In particular, all attacks were reported in the Skhid (East) sector: 120mm and 82mm mortars were used twice to attack the village of Pisky; fire from tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns was opened near the village of Novotroyitske; Ukrainian positions near the villages of Lebedynske and Mykolaivka came under fire (twice) from small arms and large-caliber machine guns; and those near the village of Hranitne were attacked from small arms, the report said.
"To hostile provocations, Joint Forces units gave an adequate response. Reports on enemy losses are being verified," the press center added.
The situation in the area of the Joint Forces Operation remains under control of Ukrainian troops.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on April 30, Russian occupation forces violated the ceasefire in Donbas 13 times, with one Ukrainian soldier reported as killed in action, and another one as wounded in action.
