Ukraine’s Joint Forces in Donbas report three incidents where the Russian-controlled armed groups opened indirect fire.

On Saturday night, the adversary fired small arms, provoking Ukrainian troops at their defense positions outside the village of Pisky. Joint Forces did not return fire, the report notes. No losses were reported, the JFO HQ press service says, adding that two servicemen were wounded.

One of the soldiers sustained shrapnel injuries by stepping on an explosive device, while another and the second defender injured his hand at one of the strongholds. Both troops were promptly evac’d to the nearest hospitals. Since day-start on Sunday, no enemy shellings have been recorded in the Joint Forces Operation zone. As UNIAN reported earlier, on July 31 Russian-controlled armed groups violated the earlier-proclaimed ceasefire four times.
