The spokesman said the Ukrainian army’s checkpoints and positions had been shelled 25 times over the past 24 hours in the east Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
Director of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s Military and Medical Department Vitaly Andronaty earlier told journalists that a total of 1,236 Ukrainian servicemen had been wounded since the start of Kiev’s military operation in the country’s east in mid-April.
During the military operation, Kiev has used armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation. Many buildings have been destroyed and tens of thousands of people have had to flee Ukraine’s embattled east.
