In addition, another four of our soldiers and one officer of the State Border Guard Service were injured in a grenade explosion in a passenger medical vehicle in the Stanytsia-Luhanska district. Another two members of the Armed forces of Ukraine were injured in the town of Krasnohorivka after possibly stepping onto a buried explosive device," Motuzianyk said at a briefing in Kyiv on Monday.
Motuzianyk also said that he could not yet disclose the details of the incident with the explosion of a grenade in the car, because the circumstances were being investigated.
