One Ukrainian soldier was killed and another two injured in the Donbas conflict zone over the last 24 hours, 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 have lost one Ukrainian soldier, and another two were injured as a result of military clashes," Lysenko said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, fighting between Russian-backed militants and the Ukrainian army took place at 2000 in Luhansk region near the village of Sokolnyky, during which the militants fired mortars, anti-aircraft guns, automatic weapons, and anti-tank grenade launchers.

There has been a large increase in the intensity of the fighting in eastern Ukraine over the last few days, with many in the country fearing there may soon be a return to full-scale hostilities.
