Donetsk, Aug 4 – DAN. Soldiers of the Ukrainian armed forces 128th brigade have been seriously wounded as they triggered a tripwire booby-trap close to the contact line, said the head of the DPR Armed Forces press service Daniil Bezsonov.

"Two Ukrainian soldiers, Basov and Feofanov, exploded on a booby-trap outside Starognatovka (Volnovakha area, 4.5 km from the contact line), where platoon position is located."

According to Bezsonov the explosive device was installed by the 93rd mechanized brigade, currently being substituted by the 128th brigade.

"It is obvious that newly arrived troops have not been provided with minefield maps."

The Joint forces operation HQ has not yet dared to publish the report, he said. *ot
