Ukraine military says Russia-controlled armed groups in the Donbas warzone on Saturday, October 17, committed five violations of the latest ceasefire agreement.

"In the past day, October 17, the Russian Federation's armed formations five times violated the July 22 ceasefire agreements reached during a Trilateral Contact Group meeting," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Command reported via Facebook in an update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on October 18, 2020.

In particular, enemy troops fired grenade launchers of various systems near the town of Avdiyivka, and the villages of Vodiane and Shumy.

Also, two enemy UAVs were spotted crossing the contact line in the Azov Sea littoral before being suppressed by electronic warfare means.
