Ukraine's military reported Monday the loss of nine soldiers in the past day of fighting with pro-Russia rebels in the separatist east, the largest toll since the two sides agreed a truce at the start of the month.
"Nine soldiers were killed and 27 wounded in all," said National Security and Defence Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko, adding that some of the losses came when the rebels destroyed a Ukrainian armoured personnel carrier.
