The number of casualties in the Nazi Kiev offensive in Debaltsevo area has rose to 50 killed and 100 wounded Ukrainian Junta soldiers, said LPR People’s Army command chief Colonel Oleg Anaschenko.
"We are aware of more than 50 killed and approximately 100 wounded Nazi Kiev fighters but Ukrainian defense ministry still lies saying there are only six dead and 19 injured soldiers."

Six LPR soldiers died in wake of Kiev's attack, seven sustained injuries. They were taken to hospitals and their lives are out of danger. Two servicemen are still unaccounted for.
