Ukrainian officials said Friday that seven Ukrainian troops were killed in overnight fighting in the restive east, as hostilities between government forces and pro-Russian rebels continued two days after President Petro Poroshenko said he would soon call a unilateral cease-fire. Vladislav Seleznev, spokesman for Ukrainian forces in the east, said seven soldiers were killed and 30 injured in fighting against pro-Russian separatists. The fighting took place on Thursday, outside the village of Yampil in the Donetsk region. Russian President Vladimir Putin has voiced concern about the Ukrainian military onslaught.
