The militia representative said the Ukrainian artillery had partially destroyed the driver training center and that air-blasts smashed windows in nearby houses.

A transformer substation was damaged, and a tuberculosis dispensary and a food warehouse came under fire as well, he added.

A total of 125 soldiers of Ukrainian government forces have been killed since the beginning of the military operation in the self-proclaimed "Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics", Ukraine's First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema has said.

"As many as 125 Ukrainian servicemen have been killed over the period of "anti-terrorist" measures on the territory of Ukraine. They include 96 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 22 police officers, as well as border guards and personnel of Ukraine's Security Service," he said in televised remarks on Monday evening.

The biggest loss of life among Ukraine's government forces occurred as a result of local militiamen shooting down Ukrainian Armed Forces airplanes and helicopters, he added.
