Near Prychepylivka, the militants fired twice, using grenade launchers of various systems, large-caliber machine guns and other small arms.
One member of the Joint Forces was wounded as a result of the shelling. The soldier received medical assistance. His health condition is satisfactory.
Meanwhile, the main reason why the summit of the leaders of the Normandy Four countries cannot take place is the conditions of Russia, which Ukraine categorically does not agree to accept. This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba.
"Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister, strategically does not want the "Normandy format" to work, tactically this is provided by the imposition of unrealistic conditions for Germany, France and Ukraine. In particular, for example, admit that this is a conflict between Ukraine and the so-called "DPR" and "LPR", forget about the role of Russia. In this conflict, Russia has only the role of a mediator in the settlement. This is a basic problem, and if we solve it, we can move forward," Kuleba said.
