"A clash took place near Katerynivka today during which, unfortunately, we have lost three soldiers," Talalai said.
He said that the information about the four killed servicemen was inaccurate. "This was a mistake. Three soldiers were killed and six were wounded. These are the results of a skirmish with subversive and reconnaissance groups which set ambushes and infiltrate into the territory controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. These are bad signals that indicate major violations of Minsk accords by the enemy," he said.
