Two servicemen killed, four wounded in enemy attack on liberated village of Pivdenne – JFO HQ
Servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces defeated early on Monday a militant sabotage and reconnaissance group that attempted to force the Ukrainian army out of the recently liberated village of Pivdenne (Chyhari) in Donetsk region, with two Ukrainian soldiers killed and four wounded in the fighting.
"Today, on May 21, at around 05:00, the enemy's subversive group of up to ten people was spotted on the southern outskirts of this village. The counter-subversion reserve of the brigade moved to intercept the subversive group, stopping its advance and throwing the enemy away from the positions of Ukraine's defenders. The enemy sustained significant losses in combat clashes and, hiding behind heavy mortar fire of its batteries, was forced to retreat," the press center for the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) headquarters reported on its Facebook page on Monday.
The press center said that two Ukrainian servicemen, including the commander of the anti-subversion group, Andriy Maslov, had been killed and four more wounded in the fighting.
