In Luhansk region, military servicemen continue to suffer from the trip wire mines explosions. On the outskirts of the Stanytsia Luhanska, Luhansk region, two Ukrainian soldiers stepped on a mine, as reported by the head of Zakarpattia region Hennadiy Moskal. Two young fighters of 21 and 24 years were hospitalized with shrapnel wounds.

KrAZ off-road truck, which carried Ukrainian soldiers, was damaged as a result of fougasse explosion. It took place in Krasna Talivka village, Luhansk region. Three Ukrainian soldiers got wounded as a result of the incident, states the press center of Luhansk regional administration. 

"Hostile sabotage terrorist groups continue to work in eastern Ukraine. This time the soldiers were wounded near the border with Russia, what may indicate that the bomb could be layed by the saboteurs who have come from the territory of a neighboring country," said the head of the Luhansk regional administration Heorhiy Tuka.

Since the beginning of the antiterrorist operation (ATO) in the area of Donbas military engineers cleared 17 thousand explosive devices. Every year about 2 mln mines are planted in the world, and only 100 thousand are defused.
