Kiev, Aug 12 IANS | 2 months ago

Fierce battles in Ukraine's restive eastern regions over the past 24 hours left at least six soldiers dead, a Ukrainian government spokesman said Tuesday.


Meanwhile, over 30 servicemen were wounded in fighting against independence-seeking rebels, said Andrei Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council (NSDC).

Government forces had clashed 26 times with insurgents over the past 24 hours, Xinhua reported citing Lysenko.

Overnight, at least seven civilians were wounded during confrontations in the city of Donetsk which is controlled by the rebels, the country's State Service for Emergencies said.

According to the agency, all those injured were taken to local hospitals with shrapnel and gunshot wounds.

There was no information about civilian casualties in the other war-torn cities and towns of eastern Ukraine, where battles have been underway since mid-April.
