In the area of the Joint Forces Operation on June 22, 5 violations by the armed formations of the Russian Federation were recorded, - the JFO headquarters reported. The occupiers fired from hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers near Zolote-4. Russian mercenaries opened fire from anti-tank hand grenade launchers and heavy machine guns near Avdiivka. The enemy fired at the Ukrainian positions from heavy anti-tank grenade launchers near Krasnohorivka. In addition, overflights of the enemy unmanned aerial vehicles of the Orlan-10 and Orlan-3M type with crossing the demarcation line were recorded in the area of the settlements of Marinka and Svitlodarsk. The enemy UAVs were suppressed in time by means of electronic warfare. There are no combat losses in the AFU ranks as a result of the enemy fire.
The "DNR" leader Denis Pushilin admitted that the Minsk agreements do not prohibit the return fire, but he is outraged that it was the Russian occupier who received the response. This follows from his statement about the death of four and wounding of five CADO militants on June 21. Pushilin tries to present the combat losses of the occupiers as "a treacherous well-aimed attack on the positions of the people's militia" near the village of Lozove not far from Donetsk. However, according to the report of the JFO press service, it was from this settlement on June 21 that "the mercenaries opened fire from 120-caliber mortars and heavy anti-tank grenade launchers at Ukrainian positions". The headquarters of the special operation reported that "the Ukrainian defenders opened fire in response to the enemy shelling". It can be assumed that it was precisely as a result of the suppression of the fire activity of the Russian occupiers that the "people's militiamen" lost four militants KIA and five WIA.
71 cases of "usual" pneumonia were detected in the occupied areas of the Donetsk oblast over the past day, which is 16 cases more than in the previous day. This was reported by the fake "Ministry of Health". Of the registered patients, 49 people needed hospitalization. In total, 1154 patients with pneumonia are being treated in CADO, of which 555 are on oxygen support (+26 over the day). The occupiers also reported that no research was carried out on the COVID-19 disease on June 21 due to the fact that the only laboratory was being sanitized. In total, as of June 22, there are 41 876 patients with COVID-19 infection, 3 557 patients are undergoing treatment (inpatient and outpatient), 3 183 patients died.
The connection of the Vodafone Ukrainian mobile operator has once again disappeared in occupied Donetsk. This was reported by users of the separatist segment of social networks. They stated that the signal, in particular, was absent in the Kirovskyi district of the regional center. "What is wrong with MTS? There is no connection in the Tekstylshchyk microdistrict", "Kirovskyi district. There is a Phoenix, but the Russian card is inactive. I understand that the Russian MTS works in the roaming of Ukrainian Vodafon", "There is no connection in Myrnyi", - local residents complained. The lack of connection of the only Ukrainian mobile operator in the occupied territory complicates the communication of CADO residents with relatives and friends in the controlled territory, and also makes it impossible to maintain roaming of Russian mobile operators.
Nine accidents with victims were committed in CADO at the weekend from June 19 to June 21, in which 11 people were injured, as well as 18 road accidents without injuries, in which cars were damaged. This was reported by the so-called "DNR MIA" on June 22.

Let us recall that the price for A-100 gasoline has risen by 7 rubles since June 17 at the CADO gas stations. Its cost is 63 rubles.

Occupation authorities of Luhansk banned the movement of vehicles and pedestrians along the overpass damaged by the explosion, located in the area of the May 1 Park, separatist media wrote.
