At 15:00 Kyiv time the militants shelled a government-controlled roadblock outside Triokhizbenka from an automatic grenade launcher, wounding three soldiers from the 92nd Separate Mechanized Brigade, according to the press service of the Luhansk regional military-civilian administration.


Two of the wounded troops received medical treatment on the spot, the third soldier was taken to a hospital in the town of Severodonetsk, reads the report.

"After a long lull, the terrorists went back to their old ways. Neglecting the Minsk agreements, they cynically fired at a Ukrainian stronghold in Triokhizbenka," said George Tuka, head of Luhansk regional military-civilian administration.

According to the press center of the ATO, the situation was generally tense on the ATO area in Donbas on November 3. From 6:00 to 18:00 Kyiv time the terrorists have resorted to nine provocative actions aiming fire on the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
