No Ukrainian soldiers were killed but four were injured in the Donbas conflict zone over the last 24 hours, presidential administration spokesman for ATO issues Colonel Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Friday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.


"Over the last day, we haven’t lost any Ukrainian soldiers, but four were injured as a result of active military clashes and provocations," he said.

According to Lysenko, three Ukrainian soldiers were injured near the town of Maryinka, and another one was injured near the village of Luhanske.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on June 3 Russian-backed militants launched a large-scale offensive on Ukrainian positions near the town of Maryinka. Five Ukrainian soldiers were killed and another 39 injured that day as a result of the fighting.

"As a result of the battle near the town of Maryinka, the militants lost 10 armored vehicles, 80 people were killed, and more than 100 wounded," Lysenko said on Thursday.
