Earlier, Russian occupants violated the ceasefire in Zolote, attacking Ukrainian servicemen and effectively breaching the disengagement procedure. One Ukrainian soldier was wounded in action.

"The illegal armed formations of Russia attacked from the heavy machine guns the area of the disengagement #2 (Zolote 4). The attacks at this area are being spotted for the second day straight; the occupants show their unwillingness to observe Minsk Agreements and assumed obligations. Such cynical behavior shows the interest of the enemy in the further escalation", reads the message by Joint Forces Operation HQ.
