Four Ukrainian Armed Forces servicemen were injured as gunfire exchanges continued and grenade launchers, mortars and artillery weapons were fired in the locality of Krymske, Luhansk region, on Thursday afternoon, Hennadiy Moskal, who chairs the Kyiv-appointed Military-Civilian Administration of Luhansk region, has said.

"The gunfire targeting our positions near a tuberculosis sanatorium originated from occupied Frunze and Sokilnyki. The residential areas of Krymske were not affected. However, four of our soldiers were injured in the fighting. Three of them sustained fragmentation wounds, and the fourth one was injured by an artillery projectile. All those injured were hospitalized. Two of them are in serious condition," according to a report, which was posted on Moskal's website on Friday morning.

The situation is quiet in Krymske on Friday morning.

The locality of Novotoshkivka, located on the Bakhmutka road, came under fire last night as well, Moskal said.

At around 9:30 p.m., militants stationed in Donetske fired mortars and artillery weapons at the Ukrainian army's positions, the governor said.
