The enemy shelled positions of Joint Forces units, using 120mm and 82mm mortars proscribed by the Minsk Agreements, as well as grenade launchers of various systems, and small arms," the press center of the Joint Forces Operation of Ukraine (JFO) Headquarters said on Facebook in a morning update on October 12.

Five of the attacks were reported in the Skhid (East) sector: two attacks near the village of Vodiane (grenade launchers of various systems, heavy machine guns, and small arms); one attack near the village of Talakivka (a tripod-mounted man-portable antitank gun and small arms); and outside the villages of Slavne and Novotroyitske (heavy machine guns).

Two attacks were recorded in the Pivnich (North) sector: near the village of Novoluhanske (120mm and 82mm mortars, automatic grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms), and outside the village of Pivdenne (hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers and small arms).

Since Saturday midnight, Russia-led forces have violated the ceasefire four times: not far from Vodiane (twice, using tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns and 120mm mortars), near the village of Pishchevyk (an automatic grenade launcher and small arms), and outside the village of Novohnativka (a tripod-mounted man-portable antitank gun).
