Ukraine has reported four enemy provocations on Wednesday, August 12, as Russia's hybrid military forces violated the newly-agreed truce in Donbas, eastern Ukraine.
"In total, the Ukrainian military recorded four ceasefire violations by the enemy in the past day," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said in a Facebook update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on August 13, 2020.
In particular, several shots from small arms by the Russian Federation's armed formations were recorded near the town of Maryinka and the village of Pivdenne. The enemy also opened fire from an automatic grenade launcher twice near the village of Zalizne. Another fact of provocation was recorded near the town of Krasnohorivka. In that area, the enemy planted one POM-2 anti-personnel mine with the help of a hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher.
It is noted the shots were provocative, so the Ukrainian military did not return fire.
No Ukrainian army casualties were reported over the past day.
Since Thursday midnight, no attacks by Russian Federation's armed formations have been recorded, the JFO HQ said.
The situation is under full control of the Ukrainian military, it said.
