No Ukrainian soldiers have been killed, but one was injured in the last 24 hours, despite Ukrainian positions coming under attack several times by Russian-backed insurgents, National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"Over the last day, we haven’t lost any Ukrainian soldiers, [and] only one was injured," Lysenko said.

Ukraine declared a unilateral ceasefire on December 9, even though an earlier ceasefire, declared on September 5, was generally ignored by the Russian-backed militants.

Since the latest ceasefire was declared, Ukrainian forces have not mounted any attacks on militant positions, but have seen their own postions attacked on a daily basis by the militants.
