While the last day in the Donbas warzone was just as intense as before, Ukraine managed to avoid casualties among its armed forces.
However, several servicemen required medical treatment after the military clashes with the Russian-backed separatist forces, Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Andriy Lysenko said in a statement.
‘No Ukrainian soldiers were killed in combat last day, but five servicemen were wounded', Lysenko said Saturday, November 5.
According to military reports, the militants attacked Ukrainian soldiers 38 times in the past 24 hours.
