As UNIAN reported earlier, a sabotage and reconnaissance group of Russian-led forces tried again to advance across the contact line in Donbas in the early hours of February 22. "Under cover of fire from small arms, the enemy tried to take the Ukrainian positions near the village of Novotoshkivske," the JFO HQ said then. JFO members timely spotted the enemy troops and repelled the attack with firearms, making them retreat and suffer losses amid the skirmish.
