Earlier, photos of fighters of the Ukrainian Volunteer Corps Right Sector, who were killed on the night of June 11 as a result of the artillery strike conducted by the militants of the Russian hybrid army on the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) forces' position near Butivka mine north of Donetsk, were published on the Internet.

On Sunday morning, Kyiv-1 Battalion Commander Yevhen Deidei and Right Sector Medical Service Head Yana Zinkevych reported that four Ukrainian volunteers from the Right Sector who were holding positions at Butivka mine were killed as a result of the heavy artillery strike on the ATO forces on the night of June 11. This information was confirmed by many volunteers and military reporters. According to them, about 20 volunteers from Right Sector and Aidar Battalion were injured in the shelling.

However, the Defense Ministry's press service claimed that Ukrainian troops sustained no losses within the abovementioned period.
