Kyiv reports one Ukrainian serviceman killed in Donbas, policeman wounded
One Ukrainian serviceman has been killed in the antiterrorist operation zone in eastern Ukraine, and a number of injuries have been suffered in the past 24 hours, Ukrainian Presidential Administration spokesman Oleksandr Motuzianyk said.
"One serviceman was killed in the hostilities, and another two servicemen and a police officer suffered injuries over the past day," Motuzianyk said at a press briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.
The serviceman killed in the Mariupol sector hit an anti-personnel mine, he said.
"One serviceman was injured in an attack near Avdiyivka, and the other was wounded by mortar fire near Shyrokyne. The policeman suffered injuries in a bomb explosion," Motuzianyk said.
There was one shelling incident each in Stanytsia Luhanska and Novozvanivka in the Luhansk sector, he said.
Thirteen shelling incidents occurred in Luhanske, Mayorske and Avdiyivka in the Donetsk area.
"Tensions in the Mariupol sector persisted only in the extreme south where the hostiles used mortars. Nearly 90 mines were fired on Ukrainian army positions right after dusk. That happened in Talakivka and Shyrokyne," the spokesman said.
In all, six shelling incidents occurred in the Mariupol sector, including four using heavy weapons, Motuzianyk said.
