Ukraine's Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Vasyl Bodnar has called on the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to inform the international community about a recent attempt by Russian-led forces to advance near the town of Zolote, Luhansk region, in Ukraine's Donbas.

"[I] called on the OSCE to immediately inform the international community about an attempted Russian offensive in the Zolote area. [I] drew attention to the use of prohibited weapons by the Russian Federation's armed forces," Bodnar said on Twitter on February 18.

The enemy's casualties included four killed and six wounded.
