No Ukrainian soldiers were killed but seven were wounded in the Donbas conflict zone over the last 24 hours, presidential administration spokesman for the Anti-Terrorist Operation Colonel Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Saturday, May 14, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
"Over the last day, we haven't lost any Ukrainian soldiers, but seven were injured as a result of military clashes in the Donetsk sector," Lysenko said.
According to Lysenko, five servicemen were injured as a result of militant attacks in the Avdiyivka industrial zone, while another two soldiers were injured in a booby-trap blast near the village of Novoselivka Druha.
