Ukraine report of dozens of attacks and never-ending military supplies from Russia
Ukraine took no losses in the conflict zone in the past 24 hours. However, 10 Ukrainian soldiers were wounded due to both combat and non-combat factors, according to a spokesman for the country's presidential administration, Oleksandr Motuzianyk.
"Two Ukrainian soldiers were wounded in direct military action, another two received injuries after a land mine blast", Motuzianyk reported.
He added, six servicemen were wounded after a grenade unexpectedly exploded during military drills at a polygon in the conflict zone.
The combat was intense last night as around 50 attacks were registered by Ukrainian soldiers overnight. According to Motuzianyk, the Russian-backed separatist forces launched more than a hundred projections at the positions of Ukraine's servicemen in Adviivka.
Mortars and high-calibre artillery were used by the militants near Donetsk as well as near Mariupol, where government forces also came under dozens of attacks. The situation in the Luhansk region was relatively stable with few provocations, Motuzianyk said.
Additionally, Ukrainian intel reported of numerous military vehicles Russia had supplied to the separatists.
"A train transporting military vehicles crossed the Ukrainian-Russian border at Dovzhanskyi checkpoint (Luhansk region). A column of tanks, armored personnel carriers, and artillery was spotted in the Donetsk region near Russian border", Motuzianyk added.
