A soldier was killed on Tuesday (10/26) on the front lines of fighting with pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, the army said, as the region is regularly plagued by outbreaks of violence.

“As a result of enemy fire, one soldier was fatally wounded,” the Ukrainian military said in a statement. Another soldier was wounded, according to the same source.

The Ukrainian side accused pro-Russian separatists of launching several cannon, grenade and machine-gun attacks on Ukrainian forces in the past few hours.

Ukraine has been in conflict since 2014 with pro-Russian separatists. The war, which broke out shortly after Moscow annexed Crimea, has claimed more than 13,000 lives to date.

Since the beginning of the year, at least 57 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed, compared to 50 for all of 2020. The separatists have reported the loss of around 40 of their fighters in the same period.

After the ceasefire was largely observed in the second half of 2020, tensions have escalated this year.

Russia has always claimed that it is not arming the separatists, despite numerous reports about sending troops and weapons to support them. A few days ago, Vladimir Putin emphasized that “the Western-backed military development of Ukraine” is a threat to his country.
