An Ukrainian border guard passes by the wreckage of a rocket as he walks to a barracks following the overnight attack of the frontier guard station in Milove, Lugansk region, on August 8, 2014Fierce battles on Ukraine’s porous eastern border left 15 government troops dead as fears of a possible Russian invasion swirled Saturday with NATO urging Moscow to withdraw its troops along the frontier. International tensions also rose as Western countries slammed a Russian food embargo imposed as revenge for sanctions slapped on Moscow over its backing for insurgents in Ukraine.
