"After the ceasefire was confirmed, the evacuation group in white helmets with identification marks did not manage to reach the body of the fallen several meters. At that time, the enemy shelled with small arms. The group retreated, but the military medic hurried to help the wounded. At this moment the enemy again began shelling with grenade launchers of various systems and heavy machine guns. As a result of the hostile fire, a military medic was killed, one soldier was injured, and another was injured."

Now the bodies of the dead and the wounded warrior are at the site of the shelling. Negotiations are ongoing with the OSCE SMM regarding their evacuation.

As we reported before, July 13, the occupants once again violated the ceasefire in Donbas and fired at Ukrainian positions near the Slavne settlement with grenade/rocket launchers and small arms.
