Illegal armed groups have violated the ceasefire regime in Donbas nine times on Feb. 14, the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said on Facebook.

The enemy shelled Ukraine’s positions using 120mm and 82mm mortars, which are prohibited by the Minsk Agreements, as well as grenade launchers of various types, heavy machine guns and small arms.
Two attacks were mounted in the area of responsibility of the Skhid (East) task force and seven – in the area of responsibility of the Pivnich (North) task force. The areas of disengagement of forces and equipment did not get under shelling attacks.
