A serviceman from the 36th Separate Marine Brigade of the Ukrainian Navy, who went missing after a skirmish with Russian-led forces near the village of Pavlopil in Donbas on May 27, has returned to his military base.

"The serviceman who disappeared during the fighting on May 27 in the Mariupol sector and with whom the connection was lost has safely returned to his unit," the press center of the Ukrainian Joint Forces Operation (JFO) headquarters said on Facebook on Sunday, June 3.

He was back to his military base on Saturday, June 2.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Russian-led forces in Donbas mounted 28 attacks on the Ukrainian army on June 2, using proscribed weapons in eight instances, the JFO press center said.

Three Ukrainian soldiers were wounded in action on that day.

Hot spots in Donbas were the towns of Avdiyivka and Maryinka, as well as the villages of Krymske, Novotoshkivske, Chermalyk, and Shyrokyne.
