KIEV (Sputnik) — At least five Ukrainian soldiers were wounded in Donbass over the last 24 hours, Alexander Motuzyanik, the spokesman for the Ukrainian forces' operation in the east, said Sunday.
"Over the past 24 hours… five soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were injured," Motuzyanik said at a press briefing.
In February 2015, Minsk peace agreement was signed between Ukraine’s conflicting sides with a provision of a full ceasefire in Donbass. Despite this fact, truce violations continue.
The situation in Ukraine’s southeast escalated in January, when Ukrainian forces and the militia of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics intensified fighting.
