KIEV, June 8. /TASS/. Seven Ukrainian servicemen were killed as their car ran into an anti-tank mine in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region, a spokesman for the headquarters of Kiev’s military operation in Donbas said on Monday.
"The accident occurred at about 14:00, local time, near the settlement of Krasnogorovka. A car carrying personnel of Ukraine’s engineering force and munitions to the Ukrainian army’s positions ran into an anti-tank mine. Seven servicemen were killed. Six of them were draftees and one was a contract soldier," Yevgeny Silkin told the television Fifth Channel.
A spokesman for the defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk republic said the servicemen ran into their own mine.
"Ukrainian servicemen are reaping the fruits of their own actions - total mining of the territory. They now explode on their own mines. No wonder such accidents happen," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
The spokesman did not rule out that more such accidents might take place, since Ukrainian troops had mined vast territories around Kiev-controlled settlements in Donbas.
