Separatists kill member of Ukrainian special forces
By Thomas Grove MARYNIVKA Ukraine (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatists operating from the grounds of a church in the eastern city of Slaviansk killed a member of the Ukrainian interior ministry's special forces and seriously wounded two others in a mortar attack on Friday, the ministry said. Slaviansk has been at the heart of a two-month insurgency in the Russian-speaking east by rebels opposed to the overthrow of a Moscow-leaning president and the formation in Kiev of a pro-European government. Fighting in the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk has intensified since the landslide election of Petro Poroshenko as president on May 25 which followed the fall and flight of the pro-Moscow Viktor Yanukovich in February. The new incident took place on the eve of the inauguration in Kiev of Petro Poroshenko as president.
