One Ukrainian soldier has been injured in the Donbas conflict zone in eastern Ukraine in the last day, National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday, according to an UNIAN correspondent. 


"Over the last day, the number of military clashes of the Russian-backed insurgents has been decreased. One Ukrainian soldier has been injured," he said.

"Fortunately, nobody has been killed," Lysenko said.

Ukraine introduced a unilateral ceasefire on December 9, but says its forces have been attacked on a daily basis since then by pro-Russian militants. The government says it ordered its troops not to return fire even if attacked.
