A bloody battle in Donetsk Oblast’s Maryinka claimed the lives of at least four Ukrainian sol­diers on June 3, and one more else­where on the front line. They are among the 27 sol­diers killed since mid-May.

Ukraine’s army re­pelled the June 3 as­sault by Rus­sia-sep­a­ratist forces in a 12-hour battle in­volv­ing ar­tillery on both sides. The gov­ern­ment still con­trols Maryinka and Kras­no­horivka, west of the oc­cu­pied strong­hold of Donetsk.

Yuriy Biryukov, a mil­i­tary ad­vi­sor to Pres­i­dent Petro Poroshenko, said some 39 Ukrainian servicemen were wounded over the past 24 hours.

Ukrainian Prime Min­is­ter Arseniy Yat­senyuk blamed Moscow for the lat­est fight­ing. “Rus­sia has once again vi­o­lated the ‘cease­fire’ agree­ment... Its ter­ror­ists be­gan a mil­i­tary op­er­a­tion.”

At least 6,417 peo­ple, in­clud­ing 626 women, have been killed and 15,962 wounded since mid-April when the Moscow-en­gi­neered in­va­sion of Don­bas be­gan.
