Enemy forces also engaged Ukrainian troops close to Pavlopil, using UAVs to spot AGS fire. Another enemy drone crossing the line of contact was spotted near Vodiane. Ukrainian forces applied e-warfare tools to suppress the enemy drone.

Given that the latest enemy attacks posed no immediate threat to the lives and health of Ukrainian soldiers, government troops refrained from returning fire.

Since day-start on Sunday, no ceasefire violations have been reported along the entire contact line.
