Seven Ukrainian soldiers killed in the Donbas

Seven Ukrainian soldiers were killed and 14 were wounded on Monday in the deadliest day for the Ukrainian Armed Forces in two months, RBC-Ukraine reported.

"In the past 24 hours, as a result of military operations, seven Ukrainian servicemen died and 14 were injured," military spokesman Andriy Lysenko told reporters.

"Things have escalated for the simple reason that this is what [the separatists] want. They do not want to live in peace,” Lysenko added.

Monday had the highest death toll for Ukrainian soldiers since May 24th, when seven servicemen were killed.
