UNIAN reports, citing a TV news report by TSN, that Ukrainian soldiers at the 31st checkpoint near the Bakhmutka highway in the Lugansk region have come under attack.

The checkpoint has become the foremost point of defence since over 100 Ukrainian troops were evacuated from the 32nd checkpoint, near Smile, after being pinned down and attacked for nearly two weeks.

The 31st checkpoint came under heavy shelling today, seriously wounding at least one soldier and killing another.

This is not the first shelling attack on the checkpoint, according to local residents, who told TSN that such bombardments are happening several times a day at the moment. The locals have taken to sheltering in basements.

The nearby 29th checkpoint was also attacked. One shell reportedly struck a dugout, but it has not yet been possible to ascertain any information on casualties.
