KYIV (QHA) -

In the area of the withdrawal of forces in one of the divisions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Dobropol district of the Donetsk region, unknown persons fired from automatic weapons and injured the sentry guard at the warehouse of rocket and artillery weapons of the unit.

The Defense Ministry spokesman on ATO issues Andriy Lysenko made a corresponding statement at a briefing for the media.

According to him, the reserve team quickly arrived to the post, which helped to repel the attack of the saboteurs.

“The wounded serviceman was taken to the military field hospital in Pokrovsk, at the moment nothing threatens his life there,” Lysenko assured.

Lysenko further noted that over the past day, Russian-occupation troops continued to violate the ceasefire, using weapons prohibited under the Minsk agreements.

Earlier, four days ago in the ATO zone three servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were injured.

Reportedly, a number of separatist sites confirm the information of the Ukrainian media that was reported on November 22, saying that the units of the 54th separate mechanized brigade and the 24th Aidar Battalion took over the village of Gladosovo, which is located in the so-called "gray zone" near Horlivka.

According to Minsk agreements, this settlement is de jure the territory controlled by the government of Ukraine, but until recently it remained de facto "nobody’s land".
