Ukraine Military Announce One Serviceman Killed In Past 24 Hours

Ukrainian military officials have announced that one Ukrainian Army serviceman was killed and four others were injured in fighting in the country’s restive eastern regions.

Ukraine’s military said on Monday one Ukrainian serviceman had been killed and four wounded in separatist eastern territories in the past 24 hours, underscoring the fragility of a two-week-old ceasefire deal.

Military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said pro-Russian rebels continued to receive a “significant” number of weapons and military equipment from Russia.

“The enemy is moving heavy weapons and military equipment, primarily in the area of Mariupol,” he said in a televised briefing, referring to a strategic government-held port city Kiev fears could be the next rebel target.
