National Guard soldiers defended a military unit in Donetsk to the last cartridge, but eventually had to leave it, the National Guard's press service has reported.
"After a long, nearly seven-hour battle between the personnel of the convoy battalion of military unit No. 3004 of the National Guard of Ukraine (Donetsk) and armed terrorists, the ammunition possessed by the military has been completely used. As a result of this, the territory of the unit was seized by armed terrorists with great resistance from the servicemen," reads the statement. It also notes that the battalion commander is now in captivity, whereas the personnel of the battalion were moved to another military unit for safety reasons.
