Since the beginning of this day, on August 12, Donbas militants since committed three ceasefire violations and fired at Ukrainian positions with prohibited weapons. The press center of the Joint Forces Operation headquarters reports.

In particular, near the settlements of Maryinka and Pivdene, several unarmed automatic rounds with small arms were noted. Another fact of provocation by the militants was recorded not far from Krasnohorivka. In this sector, the enemy, using a hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher, fired an anti-personnel fragmentation mine (POM-2) at the Ukrainian positions.

Thus, since the beginning of this day, Ukrainian military personnel have documented three facts of violation of the ceasefire by the enemy. Such enemy fire provocations did not pose a threat to our defenders, so Ukrainian units did not use weapons in response.

There are no combat losses or injuries among the personnel of the Joint Forces.

As we reported before, the Central Election Committee does not rule out that local elections in Ukraine-controlled areas of Donbas could actually take place.
