Pro-Ukraine forces clash with separatists near Donetsk
Armed pro-Russian separatists ambushed a convoy of Ukrainian self-defence fighters near Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk on Friday, two days before a presidential election, and some soldiers have been wounded, military sources said.


"They (the separatists) are using automatic weapons, snipers and grenade launchers against the battalion," Semen Semenchenko, the commander of a pro-Ukrainian militia group called the Donbass region battalion, said on his Facebook page. (Reuters)
