In the area of the Joint Forces Operation on June 25, armed formations of the Russian Federation violated the ceasefire 2 times, - the JFO headquarters reported. Despite the relative inactivity, Ukrainian defenders have no illusions that the occupiers suddenly began to observe the ceasefire. Our servicemen keep a close eye on the enemy, fully controlling his actions. Therefore, our soldiers used this time in other areas of the firefight to retrofit their positions. There are no losses in the ranks of the Joint Forces because of the enemy shelling. Situation in the area of the operation remains controlled.
The work of the Vodafone Ukrainian mobile operator in the occupied part of Luhansk oblast was resumed on June 25 at 9 a.m. This was reported by correspondent of OstroV in Luhansk. The only Ukrainian mobile operator in the occupied territory has not operated in the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts occupied by Russia since the beginning of June. The militants claimed that this was due to technical reasons, but on June 24, leader of the "LNR" Leonid Pasechnik admitted that the cell towers of MTS (Vodafone) were turned off. He instructed to "gradually turn the cell towers on". He also promised to restore access to the VKontakte social network, which was blocked on the territory of CALO after the start of mining strikes there.

One of the "DNR" militants, who guarded the captured Mariupol City Council in 2014, was detained. According to the Donetsk border detachment of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, the 38-year-old man, who was an active participant in the illegal armed formations in 2014, was detained in Mariupol. The detainee admitted that he joined the militants in the spring of 2014 and, among other tasks, guarded the seized building of the City Council. "He says that he changed his views and stopped cooperation with them after what he saw during less than a month's stay in the ranks of terrorists.
