As reported by Censor.NET citing the latest update by the JFO headquarters press center as of Oct. 28, Russian-led forces fired upon the Ukrainian troops’ strongholds 19 times including three strikes with weapons banned by the Minsk agreements.

The invaders attacked the Joint Forces fighters deployed near Krymske, Avdiivka, Pisky, Marinka, Slavne, Taramchuk, Berezove, Pavlopil, Hnutove, Lebedynske, Vodiane and Shyrokyne.

"The enemy committed mortar strikes in the vicinity of Krymske village, the Luhansk section of the forefront, Luhanske village, the Donetsk section of the frontline, and Hnutove, the Mariupol direction. 120-mm mortars were used in the first attack and 82-mm mortars in the remaining two.

"A Joint Forces fighter was wounded in action over the past day," the reported reads.

The JFO HQ also said that all yesterday’s attacks except one were committed by the Russian occupying forces in two sections of the frontline: "The greatest number of the enemy attacks was recorded in the littoral area of the Sea of Azov. The intensity of hostilities at the Donetsk section of the frontline was somewhat lower. The invaders predominantly employed grenade launchers and large-caliber machine guns against the Joint Forces units which, in their turn, gave the enemy a fitting rebuff."

Intelligence sources indicate three invaders eliminated and six more wounded yesterday.

"Not a single attack by the Russian-led forces has been recorded today, Oct. 29," the agency said.
