Russian-controlled forces in eastern Ukraine's Donbas violated the latest truce agreement three times on October 26, says the Joint Forces Operation Headquarters.

The morning update, published on the JFO HQ's Facebook page says the enemy employed small arms outside Maryinka and Shyrokyne, and grenade launchers of various types in the suburbs of Avdiyivka.

"The provocative shots posed no threat to the life of the Ukrainian defenders, so our soldiers did not return fire. There were no combat losses or injuries among JFO troops," the message says.
