No Ukrainian soldiers were killed but ten were injured in the Donbas conflict zone over the last 24 hours, presidential administration spokesman for ATO issues Colonel Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Monday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.


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

According to Lysenko, one Ukrainian border guard is missing as a result of an incident that took place on Sunday, when a Ukrainian coastguard boat was blown up in the Azov Sea off Mariupol by an improvised explosive device made by Russian-backed militants.
