"The illegal armed groups cynically violated the cease-fire agreements yesterday, firing at Ukrainian positions near Avdiivka from 120-mm mortars. As a result, one Ukrainian soldier was killed and eight injured. The mortar from which the enemy fired at Ukrainian troops' positions was masked in Putylivskyi forest," he said.
