7 sol­diers killed in clashes with rebels

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Ukraine said seven of its sol­diers had been killed and 14 wounded in “very heated” fight­ing that marked the blood­i­est clashes with pro-Rus­sian sep­a­ratists in two months. The an­nounce­ment – the high­est daily death toll since Ukraine re­ported seven of its sol­diers dy­ing on May 24 – fol­lows a flurry of talks be­tween world lead­ers and Moscow on halt­ing the 26-month war. “In the past 24 hours, as a re­sult of mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions, seven Ukrainian ser­vice­men died and 14 were in­jured,” mil­i­tary spokesper­son An­driy Ly­senko said on July 19.
