"The militants are continuing to fire heavy weapons at our positions. A soldier of the Donbas Battalion was injured at night. We suppress the militants’ firing points in response," Semenchenko said.

"Today, our anti-tank platoon destroyed a militant Kamaz truck with ammunition and infantry of the Russian occupiers," he said.

According to Semenchenko, the militants asked for a ceasefire after each exchange of fire.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 25, one soldier was killed and another two injured during the military clash near Mariupol.
