Ukraine has reported two violations of the latest ceasefire agreement by Russia-controlled armed groups in the Donbas warzone on Monday, October 19.

"In the past day, October 19, the Russian Federation's armed formations twice violated the ceasefire agreements that came into force on July 27," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Command wrote on Facebook in an update as of 07:00 Kyiv time on October 20, 2020.

In particular, the enemy fired an anti-tank grenade launcher and rifles near the village of Luhanske.

No casualties were reported in the past day.

Also, an enemy UAV was spotted crossing the contact line near the town of Avdiyivka. It was later jammed.

Since Tuesday midnight, no attacks by Russia-controlled armed formations have been recorded, the JFO HQ said.

The situation is under full control of the Ukrainian military.
