Ukrainian Separatists Force-March POWs Through Streets


Ukrainian separatists marched dozens of prisoners of war through the streets of Donetsk Sunday in an act timed to coincide with Ukraine's official Independence Day.

As Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian president, was speaking in Kiev to the soldiers and sailors in Independence Square, pro-Russian rebels in the east were staging a countermarch – parading captured vehicles and prisoners of war through the streets of Donetsk.
