However, it turned into a bloodbath, as the enemy opened fire on Ukrainian fighters that proceeded across the corridor. That particular attack resulted in 129 people killed, 18 wounded, and another 22 were considered missing in action.

The General Staff admitted that the numbers do not include the casualties among the volunteer battalions of Ukraine's Interior Ministry that fought alongside the Ukrainian army in 2014.
