Two Ukrainian soldiers were killed and five were wounded in action in ATO area during the past 24 hours. This was reported by the ATO press center.
The situation in the ATO zone escalated due to the increase in the number of provocative attacks on the Ukrainian troops’ positions. The Russian occupation forces opened fire on Ukrainian troops' positions 48 times yesterday despite the cease-fire deal stricken by the Trilateral Contact Group resolving the armed conflict in the Donbass.
To reduce enemy’s attacks, ATO forces fired in response.
