Ukraine has reported three violations of the latest ceasefire agreements by Russia-controlled armed groups in the Donbas warzone on Wednesday, August 19.

"In total, over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian military recorded three ceasefire violations by enemy forces," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Command said in a Facebook update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on August 20, 2020.

In particular, the enemy opened fire from small arms near the village of Luhanske and twice near the town of Popasna.

The shots posed no threat to the lives and health of Ukrainian troops so Joint Forces did not return fire.
