Ukraine's military took casualties as Russian occupant forces continue to attack their positions in the war-torn Donbas. On March 4, one serviceman sustained a grave combat injury; Ukraine's Defense Ministry reported that on Wednesday.

At about 6.20 a.m., the enemy launched an offensive with the use of mounted and man-portable anti-tank grenade launchers and heavy machine guns fired on the positions of Joint Forces not far from Krymske. Next, the armed gangs fired six 82 mm mines on Ukrainian outposts near Orikhove.

In both cases, the Ukrainian army returned fire, using Minsk-allowed weapons.

Previously, on March 3, Russian militants attacked Ukrainian troops in Donbas seven times. The Joint Forces Operation HQ reported that on Facebook.
