Three Ukrainian servicemen were attacked and killed by pro-Russian rebels as they attacked government positions in Avdiyivka on Sunday, disrupting the power supplies to the eastern frontline town, Ukrainian officials said.
The violation of ceasefire by both the sides with accusing each other has failed the two year old Minsk peace agreement.
According to the military spokesman of Ukrain, the troops repelled an early morning attack by rebels that aimed to destroy their positions in Avdiyivka’s industrial zone.
“The situation remains very tense. The enemy continues to fire artillery and mortars at our positions, although it is not on the offensive for now. Ukrainian troops along the whole front line are in a state of higher alert,” he said in a regular daily briefing.
