In this regard, the agency encourages people of the liberated territories, as well as areas under the control of terrorists to be vigilant: "Mines and hidden explosive devices set by the terrorists, as well as the exchange of fire between militant gangs pose the greatest threat to the people."

At that, the National Security and Defense Council noted that yesterday 18 Ukrainian soldiers were released from captivity.

"6 officers and 11 soldiers of the National Guard had been POWs for over a month in Donetsk and Snizhne," the report says.
