Situation in the area of the Joint Forces operation on August 12 remained under control, - the JFO headquarters reported. In general, Ukrainian servicemen have documented three violations of the declared ceasefire by the enemy since the beginning of the day. These enemy fire provocations posed no threat to our defenders, so Ukrainian units did not use weapons in response. There are no combat losses or injuries among the Joint Forces personnel.
9 militants of the "DNR/LNR" occupation forces were killed and 15 more were wounded during the truce. This was said in the report of the JFO headquarters. According to the intelligence of the Joint Forces, the enemy units lost 9 people dead and 15 more wounded in their own positions in two and a half weeks of the armistice due to careless handling of weapons, road accidents and explosions on unknown explosive devices. "There is a very low moral and psychological condition in the units of occupation troops of the Russian Federation. Suicides and desertions of personnel, alcohol and drug use do not stop", - the message said.
The "DNR" propagandists tripled the number of COVID-19 cases, allegedly brought from free Ukraine in the space of an hour. This was evidenced by the analysis of two versions of reports on the situation with coronavirus in the occupied territory. At first, the so-called "Ministry of Health" announced the identification on August 12 of only two infected with coronavirus, who arrived "from Ukraine". However, this "mistake" was corrected an hour later: the "ministry" simply changed "two infected" to "six cases found in those who came from Ukraine".
A humanitarian cargo weighing more than 45 tons from the International Committee of the Red Cross crossed the contact line towards the occupied territory. This was reported by the Donetsk border guard detachment of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. Three trucks with humanitarian aid to civilians living in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine followed the Kyiv-Donetsk route. The content of cars was made up of building materials and household goods. The total weight of the humanitarian aid was over 45 tons.
