A Ukrainian soldier was killed as pro-Russian separatists opened fire in the Donbas region, the Ukrainian military said on Saturday.

In a statement, the military said that it has recorded 19 cease-fire violations by pro-Russian separatists.


In another statement, it said that the separatists violated the cease-fire 66 times in different regions on Friday.

Russia and Ukraine have been locked in a conflict since hostilities in the eastern Donbas region broke out in 2014 after Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula.
