Seven Ukrainian Troops Killed in Battle with Pro-Russian Rebels

The spokesman for Ukrainian forces says seven troops were killed Thursday night in an on-going battle between Ukraine soldiers and pro-Russian rebels.

Thirty other soldiers were also injured in battle.

The Ukrainian forces have been fighting the pro-Russian rebels for weeks, despite President Petro Poroshenko’s promise to eventually cease-fire.

Thursday, NATO said more Russian forces continuing to build up forces at the Ukraine border.

The UN says at least 356 people, more than 250 of them civilians, have been killed since early May.
