Topic: Six servicemen killed as violence escalates in east Ukraine

Six servicemen were killed and 12 wounded in eastern Ukraine in the past 24 hours despite a ceasefire deal, Ukraine's military said on Tuesday, as both sides in the conflict accused the other of increasing attacks and building up weapons on the frontline. The mutual recriminations have put further strain on a two-month-old truce between Ukraine's military and pro-Russian rebels, though it remains technically in force despite almost daily reports of casualties. Armed attacks by the enemy are taking place in almost all parts (of the frontline)," Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said in a televised briefing. The most active exchange of fire on Monday was around villages near the rebel-held city of Donetsk, he said.
