“This morning I just spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin about this. He called him urgently and said that this (shelling) did not bring us closer to the world. I beg you to influence that side so that they stop killing our people, ”Zelensky said at a briefing.

According to him, the conversation with Putin was a long one.

On August 7, Zelensky held a meeting with security officials over the deaths of four Ukrainian troops as a result of shelling in the Donbass.

On the eve of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, it was reported that on August 6, as a result of two shelling of Ukrainian positions in the Donbass, four servicemen of the Armed Forces were killed.
