Ukraine leader says troop deaths 'serious breach' of truce

A photo taken and released on February 18, 2015 by the Ukrainian presidential press-service shows Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko speaking during the Security and Defence Council in KievUkrainian President Petro Poroshenko declared the killing of three government troops by pro-Moscow rebels a “serious breach of the ceasefire”, during a telephone call Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, her office said. “The firing by separatists on Ukrainian troops who were withdrawing constitutes a serious breach of the ceasefire,” he was quoted as saying. International monitors said earlier Friday the conflict in Ukraine was at a “crossroads” as further losses among government forces rattle the two-week-old truce just as it had seemed to be gaining traction. The latest skirmishes came as the UN geared up to discuss the conflict exactly one year after Russia began seizing ports and cities on the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea.
