" The names and surnames of the killed army servicemen as well as their home addresses have been kept secret. We have no data about other volunteers, Interior servicemen or members of the National Guards who were killed in the same place," the defense minister said.

During fierce fighting with self-defense forces in the Donetsk region in August a large group of Ukrainian law enforcers was forced into a trap near Ilovaisk encircled by self-defense fighters.
After a tragic defeat of the Ukrainian army servicemen in the Ilovaisk battle President Petro Poroshenko blamed commanders of two army battalions, who deserted their positions where they ought to have stayed to control the situation.
