One serviceman has been killed and two wounded after presumably triggering a landmine near Avdiyivka, Donetsk Region, LB.ua has learned from troops.

One of the wounded servicemen is in grave condition.

They said something powerful went off near them, presumably a landmine.

Hostilities in the industrial zone of Avdiyivka escalated in early March. The antiterrorist operation forces squeezed pro-Russian militants out of their positions, which enabled the Ukrainian troops to ensure fire control of the Donetsk-Horlivka motorway. The militants have since been trying to regain their positions.
