4 soldiers killed, 2 injured in volatile Donetsk

Ukraine says four of its soldiers have been killed during fresh clashes with pro-Russian forces. Two other soldiers were also injured in mortar fire in Ukraine’s restive region of Donetsk.

The Ukrainian army says the situation in the area has deteriorated and the death toll has reached its highest in weeks. Pro-Russian militia and Ukrainian government forces have been involved in armed conflict since 20-14, when Crimea declared independence from Ukraine.

A shaky ceasefire has been in place since 20-15 with the warring sides blaming each other for repeated violations. The crisis has claimed the lives of over ten-thousand people. Many others have also been displaced.
