In most cases, the enemy opened fire from rifles, grenade launchers, and 82mm mortars.

Proscribed 120mm mortars were used in some cases.

Fulfilling the Minsk agreements and taking into account the fact that it was harassing fire, JFO units did not return fire.

No Ukrainian army casualties were reported.

JFO units have begun preparations for a full and comprehensive ceasefire in accordance with the decision of the Trilateral Contact Group of July 22, 2020, which will enter into force from 00:01 on July 27, 2020.
