Kiev Military Says One Soldier Killed in Eastern Ukraine, 8 More Wounded

Members of the Ukrainian armed forces are seen near Artemivsk, eastern Ukraine.

One Ukrainian serviceman has been killed and eight were wounded in attacks by separatist rebels in the east of Ukraine in the past 24 hours despite an agreed cease-fire, military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said Tuesday.

Clashes between government forces and separatists have fallen significantly in the past three weeks. But Ukraine says separatists are still continuing across a wide area and Russia has accused Kiev of not fully complying with a peace deal worked out in Minsk, Belarus, last month.

More than 6,000 people have been killed in a conflict that erupted almost a year ago when rebels, opposed to a pro-Western government that had come to power in Kiev, seized buildings and subsequently proclaimed pro-Russian 'people's republics' in parts of the industrialized east.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
