Russia escalates situation in Donbas - Foreign Ministry

The sharp escalation of the situation in Donbas shows that Russia needs destabilization, rather than peace in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mariana Betsa reported this on Twitter.

"Sharp escalation in Donbas - 5 UA KIA, 4 WIA by Russian hybrid forces. RIP. Russia does not care about people or peace. It needs destabilized Ukraine," Betsa wrote.

As reported, five Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in Donbas over the past 24 hours, almost all of them near Krymske in Luhansk region, and four others have been wounded. One soldier is in grave condition, and three more are in satisfactory condition.
