Four servicemen have been killed this month. “It was a shot from a grenade launcher with an 82mm mortar tied to it which hit the trench, where Ukrainian soldiers were carrying out engineering works," Khomchak said.
Ukrainian forces were ready to respond, but our intelligence reported that the enemy had left his positions after the shelling, he added.
