    Donestk Airport Remains Untaken; Ukraine Fighting Continues; 30+ KIA

     
    Despite vows of newly elected President Poroshenko to end the current fighting in Ukraine, violence continues, and the Donestk Airport is no exception.

    More than 30 pro-Russian seperatists were reported to be killed after an attempt to seize the airport on Monday, and despite claims by the Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov that the airport was under their "full control", operations and fighting continued.

    Many leaders in the separatist government, the Donetsk Peoples Republic, had claimed that most of the killed fighters had been wounded being transported when their convoy was assaulted by Ukrainian troops on Monday. This claim, while it may be true, has yet to be verified.

    One of the deputies in the newly created parliament of the Donetsk Peoples Republic criticized Ukraine. “European countries need to bring the Ukrainian government to justice for violating international agreements. It is illegal under the Geneva convention to kill the wounded."

    Taking advantage of a lull in the fighting yesterday, the city was fortified by both warring parties. Separatists forces blocked roads in hopes of stalling the Ukrainian military as they advanced.
