Situation in the area of the Joint Forces Operation on 30 July remains fully controlled. Units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other components of the defense forces continue to carry out their tasks as intended, - the JFO headquarters reported. No enemy shelling was recorded in the zones of responsibility of the majority of combat brigades.
