Ukraine has reported one violation of the latest ceasefire agreement by Russia-controlled armed groups in the Donbas warzone on Sunday, October 25.

"In the past day, October 25, the Russian Federation's armed groups once violated the ceasefire," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Command wrote on Facebook in an update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on October 26, 2020.

In the evening, the enemy fired a tripod-mounted man-portable antitank gun near the town of Avdiyivka.

No casualties were reported in the past day.

Since Monday midnight, no attacks by Russia-controlled armed formations have been recorded, the JFO HQ said.

The situation is under full control of the Ukrainian military.

Noteworthy, about 420,000 Ukrainian citizens took part in the Donbas war, while the death toll from the war in the territories controlled by the Ukrainian government alone was 14,000 people.
