"Another soldier was wounded as a result of shelling from hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers, heavy machine guns and small arms near the village of Vodiane. In total, seven Ukrainian defenders have been wounded since Tuesday midnight. They were rushed to a hospital and provided with medical assistance," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation Headquarters said on Facebook on July 14.

Russian invaders are once again deliberately open fire first on the positions of the Ukrainian military in confirmation of their unwillingness to abide by the peace agreements, the report said.

The Joint Forces returned fire. Enemy losses are being verified.

As UNIAN reported, on July 13, a Ukrainian military medic was killed as Russia-led forces fired on an evacuation team of Ukraine's Joint Forces near the village of Zaitseve in Donbas, eastern Ukraine. The team wearing white helmets with identification marks was just a few meters from the body of the earlier killed soldier when the enemy opened fire from small arms, then from grenade launchers of various systems and large-caliber machine guns. As a result, the military medic was killed, one serviceman was wounded, while another one sustained a combat-related injury.
