Five Ukrainian soldiers wounded in Donbas conflict zone in last day
No Ukrainian soldiers were killed but five were wounded in the Donbas conflict zone over the last 24 hours, presidential administration spokesman for the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) Colonel Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Monday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
"Yesterday night, the militants intensified their attacks on ATO forces along the demarcation line. The fact that the militants intensified their attacks did not mean that they were preparing for active hostilities," he said.
"The Russian proxies are trying to provoke Ukrainian military to open fire in response. But we do not respond to these provocations. Unfortunately, our soldiers have been injured, but we do not give up and do not give the opportunity to blame the Ukrainian side in violation of the Minsk agreements," Lysenko said.
