"[It is] imperative that all parties respect [the] ceasefire and fully implement their commitments," it added.

As UNIAN reported, a Ukrainian military medic was killed on July 13 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 rifles, then from grenade launchers 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.
