Ukraine has reported three enemy provocations on Monday, August 3 as Russia's hybrid military forces three times violated the newly-agreed truce in Donbas, eastern Ukraine.

At lunchtime, several random shots from small arms were heard near the town of Maryinka. Another shot from an under-barrel grenade launcher was fired near the village of Mayorsk. The ceasefire was fully maintained in all other sectors of the front," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said in a Facebook update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on August 4, 2020.
Ukrainian soldiers didn't return fire, the report stresses.
