Four Ukrainian servicemen were killed, another three suffered injuries during the attack, Roman Bochkala, journalist for Inter TV channel, reported on Monday.

‘The enemy did not hesitate to use weapons of large calibers, such as 120 mm and 150 mm. Our troops return fire, and no one forbids them to’, he posted at Facebook. The reporter added that the Ukrainian military only have small arms and RPGs at their disposal, as they removed all of their heavy weaponry from the division line, as foreseen by Minsk agreements.
