The invaders shelled Ukraine's forces from an automatic grenade launcher near the settlement of Krymske.

As a result of the shelling, a Ukrainian soldier was wounded.

"Joint Forces reliably control the enemy on the contact line, while adhering to the conditions of the cease-fire," the HQ stressed.

It is also reported that throughout the past day, July 26, Russia-backed forces adhered to the ceasefire in full.

As UNIAN reported earlier, from 00:01 on July 21, a "silence regime" was established in eastern Ukraine's zone of hostilities.

JFO HQ said Ukrainian troops would "adequately respond" to enemy shelling in case the invaders violated the ceasefire.
