Three Ukrainian servicemen have been killed and two wounded in a land-mine explosion in separatist eastern territories.
Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said on April 4 that the casualties happened near the town of Avdiyivka, referring to a government-held town north of rebel-held Donetsk.
The announcement came on International Mine Awareness Day.
The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) says unexploded mines and ammunition pose a special threat to children in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have fought pro-Russian separatists.
