On December 19, Russian armed mercenaries landed one attack on the positions of Ukrainian forces in Donbas. They used grenade launchers of various systems, heavy machine guns and small arms. The Joint Forces Operation HQ reported that on Facebook.
The only ceasefire violation was observed in the area of Troitske, Luhansk region. None of the Ukrainian solders were wounded in action.
Previously, Leonid Kuchma, Ukraine’s representative at the talks of Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk said that the negotiations on the exchange of prisoners between Ukraine and the self-proclaimed republics of the occupied Donbas continue. “We had a very long meeting earlier. We would like to have much better results than we do. Among all the problems of the situation in Donbas, yesterday on the first place for us was the question of safety and liberation of illegally detained people. We failed to achieve what we wanted. I will not go into details and accuse anyone, the negotiation process continues,” Kuchma said.
