"Since the very moment when new Minsk agreements on the ceasefire were signed on February 15, militants have committed more than 750 attacks. Thus, the Ukrainian forces have lost 64 soldiers and 341 troops have been wounded. Only in the last few days, terrorists fired on the [Ukrainian] armed forces 58 times.
