The HQ noted that the armed formations of pro-Kremlin militants once again violated the ceasefire and shelled the positions of Ukrainian troops.
"The enemy used anti-tank grenade launchers against Ukrainian defenders of Novomykhailivka. Two servicemen of the Joint Forces sustained fragmentary wounds", reads the message.
The wounded military men were taken to a hospital. Their comrades returned fire, making the enemy cease action.
On April 22, the Ukrainian side of the Minsk trilateral group initiated the creation of the work group to restore control over the Ukrainian border.
