6 Pro-Russian Separatists Killed near Donetsk Airport

Pro-Russian separatist leader Denis Pushilin announced on Saturday that six members of the rebel force had been killed while trying to collect the bodies of fellow separatists who had succumbed to Ukrainian army fire earlier this week near the city of Donetsk’s airport.

Ukrainian forces had regained control of the airport in the east of the country on Monday, killing at least 50 separatists, after a Sunday presidential election was won by a landslide vote by billionaire Petro Poroshenko.
