DONETSK, April 20. /TASS/. A group of Ukrainian servicemen trying to secretly cross into the territory of the self-proclaimed eastern Ukrainian republic of Donetsk (DPR) was killed when they accidentally stepped onto a minefield created by the pro-government forces, a DPR militia spokesman said.

"At about 18:00 on Friday, two subversive groups of the enemy, each comprising between 10 and 12 members… tried to sneak onto the republic’s territory near the village of Oktyabr. Some of the ill-fated intruders walked onto a minefield. As a result, three Ukrainian servicemen were killed, and two more were injured," said Daniil Bezsonov, the head of the DPR militia’s press service.

He said the Ukrainian servicemen tried to evacuate the injured and sustained losses again: four died and five were injured.
