Yevhen Deydey, the Ukrainian MP representing the People’s Front faction was wounded during a fight in Avdiivka, Donetsk region; he was injured by fragments of the 82 mm mine that hit the Ukrainian positions in that area. The attack took place at about 6 p.m. Friday.

Deydey and two more wounded fighters were taken to a nearby hospital. The lawmaker underwent surgery and now his condition is stable; he needs blood transfusion, his fellow MPs say.

Larysa Sargan, the press secretary of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, said that the Prosecutor’s Office opened a criminal proceeding, defining the attack on Deydey as a ‘terrorist act’.

Earlier this week, the Parliament considered lifting parliamentary immunity from Yevhen Deydey as he is charged with illicit enrichment; however, the regulatory committee and fellow lawmakers decided that the Prosecutor General’s Office doesn’t have enough grounds to strip him off the immunity.

Yevhen Deydey is the Ukrainian MP and coordinator of Kyiv-1, the volunteer battalion and the special task force of Ukraine’s Interior Ministry.
