"At first, enemy troops launched a grenade using an under-barrel launcher near the village of Pivdenne. In 15 minutes, they went for the same kind of provocation outside Krasnohorivka. Realizing the enemy's true insidious intentions and provocative tactics, the Ukrainian soldiers didn't return fire. There have been no casualties among our defenders," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said in a Facebook update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on August 3, 2020.
