Three Ukrainian soldiers wounded in action in Donbas in past day

Two invaders were killed and another four were injured in the past day, intelligence reports say

Russia's hybrid military forces in the past 24 hours mounted 12 attacks on Ukrainian army positions in Donbas, with three Ukrainian soldiers reported as wounded in action (WIA).

"Three Ukrainian soldiers were wounded in the past day. According to intelligence reports, two invaders were killed and another four were wounded," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation (JFO) said in an update published on Facebook as of 07:00 Kyiv time on February 15, 2019. Russian occupation forces opened fire from 120mm and 82mm mortars, weapons installed on infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers of various types, heavy machine guns, and small arms, attacking the defenders of the towns of Maryinka and Avdiyivka, and the villages of Pisky, Opytne, Verkhniotoretske, Pavlopil, Novoluhanske, Krymske, Khutir Vilniy, and Zaitseve.

What is more, early on February 14, the enemy employed 152mm artillery systems, while attacking the village of Novoluhanske, as a result of which a shell hit a house. Ukrainian members of the Joint Control and Coordination Center (JCCC) are checking information about possible damage. "On February 14, the enemy also actively used unmanned aerial vehicles for artillery calls for fire. However, four of them were shot down by Ukrainian defenders," reads the report. "Since Friday midnight, Russian-led forces haven't attacked Ukrainian positions yet," the report said.
