At about 8 a.m., the enemy used automatic grenade launcher to shell Ukrainian positions near Vilny farmstead. As it was a provocative attack, government forces abstained from opening fire in return. No casualties were observed.
Ukrainian servicemen continue to abide by full and comprehensive ceasefire mode. At that, they are ready to respond to any action of the adversaries.
On August 24, the ceasefire in Donbas was mostly observed, except for one incident, when the enemy used a drone to drop the VOG-17 rocket-propelled grenade.
