Over the last 24 hours, October 18, Russian mercenaries twice breached the ceasefire in the area of Avdiivka. Ukraine's Defense Ministry reported that on Monday morning.
"Both facts were documented on the section in the area of Avdiivka, where the enemy opened fire from a man-portable anti-tank grenade launcher and small arms during the lunchtime. Later, an automatically mounted grenade launcher was used in the evening. The shots did not pose any threat to Ukrainian servicemen, so no weapon was fired in return to provocative actions of the enemy", reads the message posted by the Ministry.
Ukrainian forces did not take any casualties.
No shooting has been observed in Donbas since the beginning of October 19.
Earlier, Oleksiy Reznikov, Vice Prime Minister, and the Minister of Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine claimed that the government was going to prepare another division of troops in Donbas.
