The Ukrainian military will adequately respond to the enemy attacks; the latest artillery strikes on Ukrainian positions pose another attempt to disrupt the negotiations on the implementation of the ceasefire. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that as his press office quoted him.

'The attacks on the Ukrainian military are an obvious attempt to break the ceasefire talks process once again. On the diplomatic level, our position on the necessity of ceasefire and the release of prisoners remains solid and stable', Zelensky said.

He added that the use of artillery shows that Russia lost control over the militants in Donbas.

'The outraging violation of Minsk agreements, the use of artillery shows at least partial loss of control and management of the mercenaries. We hope the Russian side will resume control over these units', he said.

The Ukrainian leader also expressed his condolences to the families of the deceased warriors.

Four Ukrainian servicemen were killed in the combat area in Donbas over the last 24 hours.
