On August 7, in the areas of responsibility of our units, three facts of violation of the “silence” regime by the Russia-backed terrorists were recorded. This is stated in the morning report of the JFO headquarters. In particular, Novoluhansky had hostile unintended shots from small arms.
One more time the enemy fired from an under-barrel grenade launcher near Shumiv, and from an automatic easel grenade launcher – near Travnevoe. Since the shots were provocative, our servicemen did not react to them and did not open fire in response.
In addition, two more violations by the enemy were noted near the settlements of Uzhovka and Zolote-5 not controlled by the Ukrainian government. In these sectors of the front, the enemy carried out engineering work contrary to the agreements that were reached within the framework of the Trilateral Contact Group.
Since the beginning of the current day, on August 8, no shelling has been recorded by the armed formations of the Russian Federation in the areas of responsibility of our units. There are no combat losses or injuries among the personnel of the Joint Forces.
The situation in the area of the Joint Forces operation remains fully under control. Ukrainian soldiers and representatives of other components of the defense forces continue to carry out their tasks as intended.
