Enemy forces have already mounted four attacks on Ukrainian positions since Sunday midnight, it said.

The so-called "harvest" ceasefire started at midnight on July 21 in keeping with agreements reached by the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk on July 17. It has become the 20th truce agreed since the beginning of war in Donbas.

The JFO HQ says that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are abiding by the agreements but will fire back in response to enemy attacks.
