"Over the last day, we haven’t lost any Ukrainian soldiers, but two were injured as a result of military clashes," Lysenko said.

Earlier, the press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation headquarters reported a sharp rise in the number of attacks by militants on Ukrainian forces in the Donbas. It said 20 attacks had been carried out by militants over the last 24 hours.

In some cases, the militants used weapons that were supposed to have been withdrawn from the front line under the Minsk agreements of February 12, according to the ATO press center.
