Pro-Kremlin militants went for another provocation in Donbas; they used a drone to plant the landmine on the territory adjacent to Ukrainian positions. Press office of the State Border Guard reported that on Wednesday.
"The occupants conducted remote wiring of the roadway corridior at Mayorske checkpoint", reads the message.
At about 5 a.m. April 13, the border guards spotted a hostile UAV flying towards the checkpoint. A POM-2 landmine was planted close to the checkpoint. The mine was successfully detected, isolated and defused.
Border Guards explain that such action puts lives of civilians in danger and leads to escalation of tensions in the combat area.
On April 13, Russian mercenaries breached the ceasefire in Donbas combat area three times. A Ukrainian serviceman died in action, and another two were injured. Press office of the Joint Forces Operation HQ reported that on Tuesday.
Pro-Kremlin militants opened fire in Donetsk and Luhansk region alike. In Pvidenne (Luhansk region), the enemy used 82 mortars to shell Ukrainian positions in the area.
