On August 09, Russia’s hybrid military forces fired two provocative shot from a grenade launcher in Donbas, eastern Ukraine, amid the newly-agreed truce.

The armed formations of the Russian Federation violated the agreements reached within the Trilateral Contact Group four times. Two enemy provocations with the use of small arms were recorded near Novozvanivka (70km west of Luhansk) and Marinka (23km south-west of Donetsk). No casualties among Ukrainian troops have been reported. The situation in the JFO area remains fully controlled.

As reported, a full and comprehensive ceasefire was established in Donbas from July 27. The agreement was agreed by the Trilateral Contact Group during a video conference meeting on July 22.
