According to the source, enemy troops mounted one attack near the village of Krymske in the Pivnich (North) sector. They used grenade launchers.

Since Sunday midnight, there have been no attacks on Ukrainian positions yet.

Ukraine's Joint Forces have been abiding by the "harvest" ceasefire, which started at midnight on July 21 in keeping with agreements reached by the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk on July 17. Russia-led forces have already violated the latest truce twice since its start. The first incident was reported on July 22, when the occupation forces opened fire at Ukrainian troops in Luhansk region, using infantry weapons.

It has become the 20th ceasefire agreed since the beginning of war in Donbas.
