Due to the growing number of ceasefire violations by militants in Donbas, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny does not exclude the possibility of an invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation. Zaluzhny stated this on his Facebook page.
“Enemy provocations are an instrument of political pressure. We, as military people, do not succumb to them. At the same time, we are constantly preparing to repel various threats, including the threat of a full-scale invasion. The high level of our combat capabilities, along with the readiness of society to resist, is a guarantee of deterring the aggressor and the security of the country," the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine wrote.
He recalled that only since the beginning of September, the enemy has fired at Ukrainian positions in the JFO zone 59 times, 19 of them from weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements. As a result, one serviceman was killed, 13 were wounded, and another eight received combat injuries.
According to intelligence, the enemy's losses amounted to 6 killed and 12 wounded.
Zaluzhny assured that the station in the area of the JFO remains under the full control of the Ukrainian army.
During September 11, Donbas militants fired at the positions of Ukrainian defenders ten times. As a result of enemy shelling, one Ukrainian soldier was killed and another 10 were wounded.
