Russia's hybrid military forces in Donbas on August 5 fired a grenade in an act of provocation amid the recently-agreed ceasefire.

The enemy employed an under-barrel grenade launcher near the village of Shumy, the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation wrote in a morning update on Facebook on August 6.

"Isolated random shots posed no threat to life and health, so our soldiers held fire. Joint Forces complied with the ceasefire, being ready to adequately respond to possible insidious actions by the adversary," reads the report.
