'Pro-Russia militias kill at least 12 nationalist fighters in Donetsk' [PressTV]

In Ukraine, pro-Russia militias have killed at least twelve pro-Kiev fighters battling alongside government forces.

The militias also took captive an unknown number of nationalist fighters after ambushing their vehicle just outside the eastern city of Donetsk. It was the fighters' biggest single loss of life since the crisis began in Ukraine back in April. Donetsk has been under heavy bombardment of government forces as Ukrainian troops tighten their grip on the strongholds of pro-Russians. The besieged fighters say they are ready for a ceasefire to prevent a humanitarian disaster in the area. But Kiev has rejected their call, saying it does not believe in the intention of the pro-Russians.
