Since the beginning of the day, militants have violated the ceasefire in Donbas three times. This was reported by the Joint Forces Operation HQ.

Occupiers applied small arms to attack positions near Lebedynske; hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers - near Avdiivka.

"Enemy fire did not pose a threat to our soldiers, so they did not respond," the statement said.

There are no wounded or dead among the Ukrainian military. Ukrainian troops also found an enemy drone near Marinka and Avdiivka.

During the day, Ukrainian sappers cleared almost 13 hectares and handed over 64 explosive devices for destruction.

As we reported earlier, Vice Prime Minister, Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov believes that the reintegration of Donbas may take up to several decades.

"Yes, I continue to say that full-fledged reintegration will take at least 25 years, at least one generation. This is my belief," he noted.

According to him, allegations that the reintegration of Donbas is possible in a year or two arise from a misunderstanding of the situation.
