Fight­ing in the Don­bas had slowed down by July 6, with some 13 at­tacks re­ported on Ukrainian army po­si­tions in the past 24 hours.

Near the Rus­sian-oc­cu­pied city of Donetsk, at Avdiyivka and Pisky, Rus­sian-backed forces ex­changed fire for sev­eral hours overnight on July 6. Stanyt­sia Luhan­ska and the vil­lage of Krymske in Luhansk Oblast also re­mained hot spots.

But de­spite govern­ment at­tempts to halt the fight­ing, daily clashes claimed the lives of at least 28 sol­diers in June alone, ac­cord­ing to a Kyiv Post count based on in­for­ma­tion from the mil­i­tary, vol­un­teers and lo­cal me­dia re­ports.

The Ukrainian mil­i­tary re­ported that 182 sol­diers were wounded in hos­til­i­ties over the last month, bring­ing the over­all num­ber of wounded to at least 9,941 since the start of Rus­sian mil­i­tary ag­gres­sion in the Don­bas in 2014. At least 10,000 people, mostly civil­ians, have been killed in Rus­sia’s war since 2014.

Those pic­tured below are Ukrainian sol­diers known to have been killed from May 30 to July 3.
