Pro-Russian insurgents on Sunday paraded captured Ukrainian soldiers through the streets of the rebel stronghold Donetsk as bystanders shouted abusive slurs and tossed eggs, bottles, and tomatoes at them. The display came as President Petro Poroshenko vowed to raise defense spending to defeat the rebels during an ostentatious procession of tanks and weaponry through downtown Kiev, meant to mark Ukraine’s 23rd anniversary of independence from the Soviet Union. The developments underscore the increasing divisions in Ukraine as it gears up for what could be many more months of conflict.
