Ukrainian separatists report heavy losses in Donetsk airport battle

Tuesday, May 27, 2014 | Worthy News / World News

Pro-Russian separatists said Tuesday they sustained big losses in a gun battle Monday for control of this citys international airport as sporadic shooting continued around the airport.

A top Donetsk separatist leader, Pavel Gubarev, posted on his Facebook page early Tuesday that a rocket-propelled grenade hit a truck that was carrying wounded separatists from the battle at the airport, killing an estimated 35 and injuring 15. His claim could not immediately be confirmed. Donetsk Mayor Oleksandr Lukyanchenko told reporters that 40 people were killed and 43 hospitalized from injuries related to the fighting around the city's airport and railway station, Russia's Interfax news agency reported. Civilians near the railway station were among the victims, he said, although he did not specify how many.
