One Ukrainian soldier was reported killed and another three wounded on Monday when Russian-hybrid forces mounted 14 attacks on Ukrainian troops.

Three of the attackers were killed and another seven were wounded, Ukraine’s Joint Forces Operation (JFO) wrote at 7 a.m. today, Kyiv time.

Defending Ukrainian soldiers also destroyed an enemy infantry fighting vehicle, using an anti-tank missile system.

Russian occupation forces fired at Ukrainian troops using 82mm mortars, grenade launchers of various types, heavy machine guns, sniper rifles, and small arms.

They attacked Ukrainian positions near the towns of Maryinka, Avdiyivka, and Popasna, as well as near the villages of Hnutove, Pavlopil, Opytne, Novo-Oleksandrivka, Katerynivka, and Zolote-4.

“Since Tuesday midnight, Russia-led forces have attacked Ukrainian positions near Hnutove, using 120mm mortars, tripod-mounted man-portable antitank guns, and heavy machine guns. There have been no casualties among the Ukrainian military,” the JFO reported.
