During the following day, November 28, two Ukrainian servicemen sustained injuries in the Joint Forces Operation zone in Donbas. The press office of the Joint Forces Operation HQ reported this on Facebook.
The militants performed four shelling in Donbas using weapons prohibited by the Minsk Agreements.
It is noted that the occupiers shelled the Ukrainian positions near Vilne farmstead from the prohibited mortars, mounted grenade launchers and heavy machine guns. Besides, the enemy used small arms against Shumy and Novhorodske, and grenade launchers near Pesky.
‘Two servicemen of the Joint Forces received injuries during the combat actions. The situation in the JFO zone remains under control,’ reads the message.
As we reported earlier the coast guard ships of the Russian Navy acted aggressively against the ships of the Ukrainian Navy, which have been carrying out a scheduled transition from Odesa port to Mariupol port in the Sea of Azov.
Kyiv demanded from Moscow to immediately provide the medical service to the wounded sailors and provide them urgent return to the Ukrainian territory. According to the Naval Forces of Ukraine, six sailors are wounded and two of them were in the critical condition.
Russian Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova named the exact number of the detained Ukrainian servicemen – 24. Moskalkova added that “procedural actions connected with the establishment of the facts of the events. If a military vessel enters the waters, certainly, this is a violation of the borders, this is a socially dangerous act, which demands a special qualification and procedure.”
Later it was reported that the Ukrainian servicemen taken captive in Kerch Strait are being forced to give false testimony. The Commander of Ukraine’s Navy noted that the lawyers have already met with this military.
