Six Ukrainian soldiers killed ahead of separatist vote

A woman walks next destroyed shops in the Kuybeshevski area in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, on November 1, 2014Six Ukrainian soldiers were killed by pro-Russian rebels, officials said Saturday on the eve of separatist elections that Ukraine and its Western backers say will undermine an increasingly hollow truce accord. Losses in the last 24 hours “as a result of fighting were six servicemen killed and 10 wounded,” Volodymyr Polyovy, spokesman for the National Security and Defence Council, said. One of the main attacks took place at the ruins of Donetsk airport, which remains partly in Ukrainian hands, despite lying in territory mostly controled by the separatists, officials said. Explosions were audible from central Donetsk most of the night, apparently from artillery targeting the airport.
