The ATO press center gave no reports about any wounded, while Gumenyuk reported that a soldier of his battalion had been seriously wounded.

As reported earlier, six Ukrainian soldiers were killed in Pisky on the previous day as a result of militant attacks, according to the commander of the Azov volunteer battalion, Andriy Biletsky.
