In the area of the Joint Forces Operation on June 16, armed formations of the Russian Federation violated the ceasefire two times, - the JFO headquarters reported. Our warriors did not leave unashamed actions of the occupiers unanswered, having used duty fire weapons, after which the occupiers turned their criminal activity off.

The CALDO occupiers sabotage the rhythmical work of the entry-exit checkpoints in the area of the Joint Forces Operation, - the JFO headquarters reported. "Russian troops and their puppet administrations do not allow civilians in the Donetsk oblast to cross the demarcation line to either side for the seventh day in a row. Due to the fault of the occupiers, who block all attempts by citizens to get their own homes, the Marinka checkpoint is still not functioning. Invaders The occupiers demonstrate complete indifference to the problems of civilians. At the same time, the Stanytsia Luhanska checkpoint in the Luhansk oblast let citizens pass intermittently: 155 citizens crossed this checkpoint in both sides on June 16. Two more people were denied access to part of the Donbass uncontrolled by the Ukrainian government", - the JFO headquarters stated.
The "DNR" occupation authorities recognized 854 cases of COVID-19 as of June 16. This was stated in the report of the fake "Ministry of Health". It was noted that another 21 cases of COVID-19 were recorded in CADO over the day. One case of a new coronavirus infection was recorded in a person who arrived from the Russian Federation. Other positive results of the study on a new coronavirus infection have been identified in individuals who have previously been ill. There are 9 medical workers among them. In addition, 5 deaths were "officially" registered - men aged 74 and 60 years, two women aged 52 years and one at the age of 54 years.
Occupation authorities of the "DNR" demand the Ukrainian mobile operator Vodafone to pay them for the electricity consumed by the cell towers. This follows from the message of the so-called "DNR MIA". According to the "ministry", the participants heard a report by an unnamed OSCE coordinator on the work of the Vodafone mobile operator, and allegedly "his electricity debt". The Ukrainian side, in turn, focused on the fact that the self-proclaimed CADLO authorities should provide Ukrainian operators with the possibility of mobile communications in the occupied territories. As stated in the message of the Office of the President of Ukraine, this refers, above all, to the satisfaction of humanitarian needs. As previously reported, no payments to the militants by Ukrainian companies are possible, as this is the financing of terrorism.
A former participant in the exchange, handed over by Ukraine to the occupied part of Donetsk oblast, escaped from the "DNR" to the controlled territory. This follows from a statement of calling herself the "human rights ombudsperson" Daria Morozova. She tried to present the flight of Sergey Pastukhov, who was handed over to the territory of CADO in the framework of exchange of the persons held in December 2019, as an absurd coincidence.
The Luhanskvoda enterprise controlled by the "LNR" militants reduced water supply to four cities in the occupied territory of Luhansk oblast due to a pipe leak in the water main, separatist media wrote. "On June 16, there was a pipe leak in the Rodakove water main with a diameter of 1000 mm. As a result, the supply of water to a number of cities was reduced during the accident elimination, namely: Alchevsk, Perevalsk, Brianka and Artemivsk. Water shortages will not exceed 50% of the daily plan", - the report said. The accident at the water main also left Rovenky and part of the Dovzhansky district without water, - the so-called "Ministry of Emergency Situations of the LNR" reported. "In connection with the accident at the main water conduit… the water supply to Rovenky was stopped, as well as to consumers of the Sverdlovsk district connected to the Volodarsk water main", - the report said.
