On March 12, Russian occupants landed two attacks on Ukrainian positions in Donbas. That resulted in a combat wound for a Ukrainian serviceman, the press office of the Joint Forces Operation HQ reported.
The enemy used grenade launchers and machine guns to attack the emplacements of Ukrainian government forces. A sniper pair worked in the combat area, too.
One attack was observed in the area of Vodyane, Donetsk region; another one took place near Zaitsevo, Luhansk region.
Earlier, the HQ of the Joint Forces Operation reported that a group of snipers of the regular Russian army came to Dombas; they appeared to be the cadets who arrived in the combat area to pass their "final exam". "The occupants wounded one of our defenders by the aiming fire. The injured soldier was provided with the necessary aid urgently. Such criminal activity was not left without a response. The Ukrainian military, using the permitted armament, destroyed the firing points of the enemy. The losses of the enemy to be specified,” the message said.
