In particular, the enemy used grenade launchers and large-caliber machine guns to fire at Ukrainian strongholds near the villages of Troyitske, Luhanske and Novozvanivka in the Luhansk sector. One Ukrainian soldier was wounded in an attack on Novozvanivka.

Despite the truce observed in the Donetsk sector, one Ukrainian soldier was killed in a landmine blast amid a combat-related task to relocate property. Another soldier received a shrapnel wound during mine clearance.

Both wounded soldiers were immediately hospitalized and received necessary medical assistance.

As UNIAN reported earlier, one Ukrainian soldier was wounded on March 10. Five enemy attacks were recorded on that day.
