According to the information of the border guards, the ray came from the temporarily occupied territory of Donbas.

As a result of the incident, the serviceman got a retinal burn.

"The established medical diagnosis and the nature of the lesion make it possible to conclude that the enemy uses light emitters of high power – the so-called blinding lasers," the border service said.

The soldier is undergoing treatment at the main military medical clinic center of the State Border Guard Service.
