No Ukrainian servicemen were killed, but seven were wounded in fighting in eastern Ukraine in the past 24 hours, Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Andriy Lysenko reported at a regular press briefing on Monday.

The confirmed enemy losses stand at 6 dead and 6 wounded, Lysenko added.

Combined Russian-separatist forces attacked Ukrainian army positions in eastern Ukraine 35 times in the past day - 20 in the Mariupol sector, nine barrages in the Luhansk sector, and six in the Donetsk sector – including four artillery attacks.

Lysenko specified that almost 100 mortar shells were fired on Ukrainian positions in the Donetsk sector, namely in Luhansk and Avdiivka.
