Two Ukrainian soldiers, one local resident injured in Luhansk region

Two Ukrainian military servicemen and a civilian have been injured in artillery shelling of Stanytsia Luhanska on Sunday, the head of the Luhansk regional military-civilian administration Hennadiy Moskal said.

After 9 p.m. last night, militants "fired antiaircraft weapons, grenades and mortars at Stanytsia Luhanska from the right bank of Siversky Donets," he said.

"A battle ensued, involving the use of automatic weapons. During the fight one grenade hit a private house in Chervonoarmiyska Street, causing it to catch fire. Since firefighters could not travel to the scene because of the hostilities, the house burned down completely," Moskal's spokesperson said on Monday.

During the skirmishes two Ukrainian soldiers have been injured. The injuries are minor and not life-threatening, Moskal said.

A civilian has also been injured after his house was hit by a grenade.

Furthermore, a gas pipe has been damaged, leaving ten houses without gas supplies.

"This morning it is quiet in Stanytsia, maintenance teams are working to restore gas supplies," the Moskal's press service said.
