Since the beginning of the day, October 13, six ceasefire violations took place in Donbas combat area. The press office of Ukraine's Defense Ministry reported that.
Russian mercenaries landed three attacks in the area of Zaitsevo, and two in Khutir Vilny (Luhansk region). They used small arms and grenade launchers. Near Pisky and Orikhove, the enemy opened fire from automatic grenade launchers.
The Ukrainian military also downed two hostile drones in the areas of Vodyane and Pishchevik. The UAVs were jammed, thanks to the efforts of jamming devices.
Enemy provocations did not pose any threat to the lives of Ukrainian servicemen; they did not return fire.
