Situation in the area of the Joint Forces Operation on October 7 remains under the control of our units, - the press center of the JFO headquarters reported. One violation of the ceasefire by the Russian occupation forces has been recorded in the zones of responsibility of our brigades since the beginning of the day: the enemy opened fire near Vodiane, having used small arms.

The Russian Federation continues to supply weapons and military equipment to the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. This was stated by the Ukrainian side of the Joint Centre for Control and Coordination (JCCC) on ceasefire and stabilization of the demarcation line between the parties.

The facts of violations by the Russian occupation forces were recorded in the daily report of the OSCE SMM.
Mass layoffs at the Donetsk Metallurgical Plant pose a risk of disruption to the supply of heat to residents of three districts of the regional center.

The letter said that workers of the DMP have not received wages for more than 4 months and no real measures have been taken to pay them off. Appeals of the labor collective to the self-proclaimed authorities remain unanswered and unresponsive. The people are in dire straits and have to quit. According to N.Shpundra, an average of 34 people resigned per month in the first half of the year, in July-August - 120 people each, 154 people quit in September. "Of particular concern is the dismissal of personnel of the energy shops, which not only ensure the safe life of the enterprise, but also supply heat to residential buildings in three districts of Donetsk", - Shpundra emphasized. The chairman of the trade union committee noted that "the personnel of the energy shops is highly qualified workers with extensive professional experience with especially dangerous jobs and there is practically no one to replace them".
