Russia's hybrid military forces on Sunday mounted 13 attacks on Ukrainian army positions in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, with one Ukrainian soldier reported as killed in action (KIA), and another three as wounded in action (WIA).
"The armed forces of the Russian Federation and its mercenaries violated the ceasefire 13 times on August 25," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation said in an update posted on Facebook as of 07:00 Kyiv time on August 26, 2019.
Russian occupation forces opened fire from grenade launchers of various systems, heavy machine guns, and small arms. Under attack were Ukrainian positions near the towns of Maryinka and Avdiyivka, and the villages of Mykolaivka, Vodiane, Pavlopil, Troyitske, Shumy, Zolote-4, and Pivdenne.
"Since Monday midnight, Russian-led forces haven't attacked Ukrainian positions yet," the report reads.
As UNIAN wrote earlier, the latest ceasefire was introduced in the Donbas warzone from 00:01 on July 21. The JFO Headquarters emphasized that the Ukrainian troops units would "adequately respond" to enemy shelling in case of violation of the ceasefire by the invaders.
