In the area of the Joint Forces Operation on September 10, three violations of the full and comprehensive ceasefire by the armed formations of the Russian Federation were recorded in the areas of responsibility of our units, - the JFO headquarters reported. The Russian occupation forces opened fire from small arms at Ukrainian positions near the settlement of Shumy at 14.15. The shelling was aimed and directed at the area where the meeting of the JCCC and OSCE representatives was to take place and where security guarantees were provided. Thanks to the efficiency of the Ukrainian intelligence officers, the actions of the armed formations of the Russian Federation were predicted in advance, so they quickly managed to secure not only the military personnel of the Joint Forces, but also representatives of the JCCC and the OSCE. In addition, the enemy fired shots from small arms towards our positions in the area of Zolote and Zolote-5, having used tracer bullets to set fire to the grass. There are no combat losses among the Joint Forces personnel.

Occupation authorities of the "DNR" assure that Yakubov is unable to confirm his identity with documents of the Russian Federation or Ukraine, since he is a "citizen" of the fake "DNR".
