Four Ukrainian soldiers were wounded in fighting in eastern Ukraine in the past 24 hours, according to a Ukrainian defense ministry spokesman.

"There were four wounded in action (WIA). One of them was injured after possibly stepping onto a buried explosive device," Defense Ministry speaker for Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) issues Oleksandr Motuzianyk said at a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday, August 16, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia's hybrid military forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in Donbas 33 times in the past 24 hours.
