The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine is disturbed by reports of the capturing of a Ukrainian Armed Forces serviceman by Russian-backed forces, as well as the wounding of a civilian and two Ukrainian servicemen in Donbas.

The diplomatic mission wrote this on its Facebook page.

"We are disturbed by reports of the capturing of a Ukrainian soldier and injuries of a civilian and two Ukrainian servicemembers as a result of ceasefire violations along the line of contact. We call on Russia to cease its aggression, which is causing the needless suffering of Ukrainian citizens," the post reads.

On December 17, a Ukrainian Joint Forces serviceman from a military unit stationed in the area of the Joint Forces Operation in eastern Ukraine was detained by representatives of illegal armed groups in Luhansk region.

On December 21, two servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were wounded in enemy shelling near Horlivka, Donetsk region.
