A service member of the Ukrainian armed forces observes the area bordering the rebel-controlled city of Horlivka from combat positions near the line of separation in New York town in the Donetsk region, Ukraine February 9, 2022.

April 24 (Reuters) - Ukraine has repelled numerous Russian assaults along the line of contact in Donbas this week, a British military update said on Sunday.

Reuters could not immediately verify the report.
