DONBASS, Novorossia – The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has released a statement claiming that three Ukrainian soldiers were killed and a further four injured in clashes between Ukrainian regime forces and Donbass self-defense units.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry claimed that the Donbass forces broke the ceasefire agreement that was reached in late 2017 and was meant to begin on December 23.

However, both sides have accused each other of breaking that ceasefire on numerous occasions.

Donbass forces revealed that two civilians were wounded in mortar and rifle attacks by Ukrainian forces which is what spurred the attack on their military units.

Since April 2014, more than 10,300 people have been killed by fighting between Ukrainian regime forces and the Donbass self-defense units.
