Over the past day, the government troops sustained no casualties in the zone of the antiterrorist operation in Donbas, the press officer of the Ministry of Defence on the ATO Col. Oleksandr Motuzyanyk told a briefing on 15 December.

Unfortunately, there were civilian casualties, he said, as one civilian was killed and another one was wounded in the arm due to an armed provocation of the militants.

Also, a local resident was reportedly killed in the shelling of Maryinka.

Over the past day, the Russian-backed separatists 18 times shelled the positions of Ukrainian troops along the frontline.
