Kiev forces have lost up to 50 servicemen over the past 24 hours, Lugansk People’s Republic People’s Militia spokesman Ivan Filiponenko said.
“The enemy has suffered huge losses of manpower and equipment during the LPR militia offensive over the past 24 hours, amounting to 50 servicemen, four armored personnel carriers and six specialized vehicles,” Filiponenko said.
The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. The peace talks participants have announced ceasefire more than 20 times since the autumn of 2014. Kiev forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large caliber artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn from the contact line under the accords. *i*s
