4:34 p.m. — One Ukrainian army officer in the hospital in Volnovkha says that 13 soldiers were killed today in the nearby Donetsk Oblast village of Olginka, another two died in the hospital, one remains in critical condition and 33 were wounded. Only seven of the group of Ukrainian army reservists, called up from western Ukraine and sent to the east several years ago, were uninjured in the attack. The officer says up to 20 attackers were involved. “I’m sure they were mercenaries,” said the officer, who refused to be identified because he is not authorized to speak publicly. — Oksana Grytsenko
