Lysenko: 13 Ukrainian soldiers wounded in Donbas in last day
No Ukrainian soldiers were killed but 13 were wounded in the Donbas conflict zone over the last 24 hours, presidential administration spokesman for the Anti-Terrorist Operation 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 two were injured as a result of military clashes. In addition, 11 of our soldiers were injured as a result of careless handling of explosive device near the town of Maryinka," Lysenko said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the combined Russian-separatist forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine 44 times in the past 24 hours, with hot spots being concentrated in the Donetsk sector.
