Ukrainian forces, rebels clash near Russian border
About 30 Ukrainian servicemen were wounded in fighting with pro-Russian separatists near Ukraine's eastern border with Russia early on Tuesday, the border guard service said. It said separatist fighters had fired mortar bombs on government forces and border guards during the night near the city of Luhansk. The separatists say government forces have been shelling their positions this week, including around the city of Slaviansk, scene of some of the heaviest fighting since the uprising began in the Russian-speaking east in April.
